The latest display at the Mill Pond Library in Kingston is a collection of dolls owned by Marlene Kohn of Marquette. When asked how she came to collect dolls Marlene replied, "I found most of them at Bargains Galore, and they cost $.50 or a $1.00. I just felt sorry for them and had to take them home!" Come check out the display before it changes...next up is a collection of snowmen! If you have a collection you'd be willing to loan us to display for a month, give the library a call at 920-394-3281 or stop in and we'll make arrangements.
The Markesan Library has challenged our library in Kingston to a Penny War. Starting on Feb. 16th and running through March 16th both libraries will collect pennies. The losing library has to display a booby prize of the winning library's choice for the following month. The winning library gets to display the Grand Penny for a month. Help us to be the winning library and donate your pennies today!!
We are also starting a Road to the Oscars evening, having borrowed the idea from the Green Lake Library who has been doing this for several years now. On Tuesday, Feb. 10th, and for the next 8 Tuesdays, starting at 6pm we will be screening Academy Award nominated films. Popcorn will be provided. Bring a friend and get in for free. Oh wait, everyone gets in for free! Come have a night of fun with friends.
Watch for news in the coming months on computer classes starting on subjects like Computer Security, Facebook, and selling on EBAY. Our library has also volunteered to be the Community Calendar minder for groups in our area for the next year. If your club or group plans an event please let us know so we can put it on our calendar. The main idea behind the calendar is to avoid having two events happening on the same day.

State tax forms are in, and hopefully the Federal forms will arrive soon. Just a note, we will not be getting any Federal instruction booklets. That is a new development this year. If you need the instruction booklets you can call the IRS or visit their website at www.irs.gov.
