1. First and foremost, there will be a temporary closure for carpet removal and asbestos abatement at the end of the week. Here is the library's schedule this week:
2. Work on the Children's Room begins this week, so we've temporarily relocated Children's materials, furniture, (and the Children's Librarian) to a location just outside of the Children's Room.
Children's Room activities like the Craft of the Month and the Winter Reading Program are still available, so ask a librarian for the craft or a Winter Reading Program bingo card.
3. The Children's Room computers have been temporarily relocated. We've changed the log-in credentials on four of the Adult computers to allow access only for patrons age 17 and younger. You'll find them clearly marked on the same side as the public printer. The computer on very end to the left is a catalog computer and can be used by patrons of all ages. Adult library cards will not work on the Children's computers. If you are 18+, you'll need to use the computers on the other side. Ask a librarian if you need help logging in.
4. Tuesday Storytime will be held at the Billings Park Civic Center this week. Join us Tuesday at 10:30 for stories, crafts, and fun! Billings Park Civic Center is located at 3903 N 18th Street.
Next week's Tuesday Storytime on February 20 will return to the library and will be held in the Library Chandelier Area. Since we don't want boots and shoes on the brand-new carpet, this storytime will be a Cute Sock Storytime--kids are encouraged to wear their cutest and most creative socks to this special storytime. Prizes will be awarded!
After February 20, Tuesday Storytime will be back at the Billings Park Civic Center until further notice.
5. Monday night Lego Club is still on at the library! Join us Mondays from 6 to 8 p.m. and build something AWESOME will the library's huge collection of Legos!
6. The last thing (and we know you're sick of hearing it!), is that we want to thank you for your continued patience while we undergo this much-needed remodel. You've been fantastic supporters in the midst of chaos, and we appreciate it very much! As always, if you're looking for something and can't find it, please ask a librarian and we will be happy to help you.
Superior Public Library has proudly served the residents of Douglas County, Wisconsin since 1888. After 25 years in our current location with no major upgrades, it's time for some improvements! Follow along with our six-month remodeling project, scheduled to be completed in May 2018.
