G-E-T AnnualsThe library is missing many yearbook issues.
If you have one from a “missing year”,
the library would be very grateful to receive it as a donation.
We’re also wondering if some of these
years didn’t even have a yearbook.
Any help you could give us would be much appreciated.
1918, 1919, 1921, 1924, 1925, 1927, 1929,
1931, 1933, 1934, 1935, 1936, 1937,
1940, 1941, 1942, 1944, 1956, 1959,
1960, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1965, and 1966.
We will be having all our yearbooks digitized,
so if you have one of our missing years but can’t bear to donate it,
we would love to borrow it.
We’ll get it back to you when the project is over.
Thanks to the Duellmans, Bev Modahl, and Laurie Hovell
for donating and lending 8 books already.
Happy Spring cleaning!

We are very sorry about the delay.
(Wisconsin forms have been here for a few weeks.)
If you need forms that we don’t have,
the staff can print them for you for 15 cents per page.

IMG_0936We have three new books by local authors.
Come and check one out today!
Or, you can request it from the comfort of your own home.
Paragrafs is by our mayor, John Graf.
It is a compilation of his newspaper columns from The Galesville Republican.
Seven Summers with Peregrines: Finding Midlife Adventures
is by Jean and Gary Ruhser, of Holmen.
Jean worked at our library for several years.
This is an account of their time monitoring
nesting Peregrine Falcons out west.
One Woman’s River: A Solo Source-to-Sea Paddle on the Mighty Mississippi
is written and illustrated by Ellen Kolbo McDonah of Trempealeau.
Ellen is the only woman who has ever done this trip alone.
All of these interesting books are available for you to read.
Also, on April 19th at 7pm, the Ruhsers will
give a presentation here about their book. Join us!
