The Mill Pond Library Photography Club just finished its first exhibition. They raised $330.00, which was donated to the library, from prints that sold and a drawing that was held. The drawing featured a photo taken by member Kathy Sletten, and the lucky winner was Mark Dugenske of Marquette. The club is thinking of doing a barn crawl in the Fall, taking pictures of interesting looking barns. If you'd be willing to have your barn photographed send an email to Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please stop by and chat with Jack about how important the libraries are in our County and the need for support.
The Mill Pond Library in Kingston currently has a display of antique hats for viewing. The hats belong to Bernice Brekke of Dalton, and will be on display until April 23rd. Bernice and her husband Ed were members of the Badger Antique Car Club and liked to dress the part at times when driving their antique car for events. In the display there are also some old photos showing the couple dressed up, and the library has provided books on hats from that era. Stop in and see the display any day that the library is open
