Starting on Thursday, July 2nd at 2pm, and running for 4 weeks, we will be holding our Summer Reading Program. The theme this year is "Every Hero Has a Story" and we have different heroes coming in to read a story and talk about their professions. To start off on July 2nd Doug Stoll will be reading and talking about his experiences in the military. On July 16th Becky Knight who is a scientist will read and talk about the important work scientists perform. On July 23rd the programs is about a woman who raises bats. I know some would say "Bats, ewwww!" but bats can be heroes too. Did you know many tropical plant species depend entirely on bats for the distribution of their seeds? And an ordinary brown bat can eat up to 100 percent of its body weight each night, approximately 1,200 insects per hour. Come hear about these and other heroes during the month of July. Stop in at the library and sign up today!!
The Photography Club is holding their 2nd annual photo exhibit and sale here at the library. Each member of the club has donated several matted prints and they are on display from now until June 20th. There are a wide range of subjects in the photos, from nature to our rural community. An old truck in the weeds, various poses of bovine, city lights at night, to mention a few. There are prints in black and white, and color. The prints cost $20.00 each and sales benefit the Mill Pond Library. The photography club meets regularly to share ideas, study photo techniques, and shoot together in the area. New members are always welcome and if interested in joining you can contact Kathy Sletten by phone at 920-394-2113 or by email at email@example.com.
