christmas-tree7We had a lovely time at our Holiday Tea on Saturday.
We are so glad that 58 of you could join us!
We also have a “Wishing Tree” on the bulletin board, covered with paper ornaments.
Written on each ornament is a title that the library is wishing for.
You are welcome to choose an ornament,
and make a donation that will cover the cost of that item.
Visitors to our tea chose 13 ornaments off the tree and made donations!
Thank you so much for all your support.
The Wishing Tree will stay up through December,
so that everyone can have a chance to contribute.

pscAs you know, more and more work that students do at school is Internet-based.
Students without Internet access at home are often unable to do their homework.
The equity gap that this situation creates is a serious problem for these students.
The Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSCW) is conducting a statewide survey
to gather information about residential Internet access throughout the state.
The survey gives families in your area the opportunity to tell service providers
if they need better or more affordable Internet access – or don’t have access at all.
The survey, located here, takes about 5 minutes to complete.
Households that do not have home access to the Internet
can take the survey by phone (877-360-2973).
It is especially important for these households to take the survey,
so that PSCW and Internet providers know the location of all households
that do not have high-quality, affordable Internet access.
Please take advantage of this opportunity for
your voice to be heard regarding broadband!
