SG Library short note

Hello Friends,

You may have heard that the Library took in some water recently. Just to let you know, thanks to a quick response by volunteers and staff covering shelves,

moving furniture & artwork, nothing inside was damaged as water leaked in through the ceiling due to an ice jam above the children’s area. The dripping has stopped and things are back to normal. Repairs will begin when things dry up completely.
Happy Spring!

Greetings Everyone,

It’s February and believe it or not, we’re on our way out of winter!

This month the Library is once again collaborating with the Kickapoo Valley Reserve http://kvr.state.wi.us/Home in support of their "Creative Communities Canvas Project". This is an inspiring fundraiser for the Reserve, which costs nothing for you to participate and has FLIGHT IN NATURE as its theme. Participants receive a 6-inch-by 6-inch canvas to artistically interpret this themeasit pertains to nature. The art canvases will ultimately be sold through an online auction with proceeds going to the KVR Education and Events Program. Canvases are available to pick up at the KVR Visitor Center or here at the Soldiers Grove Library, to be returned by Feb 25th, either at the Reserve or the Library. We’ll have two opportunities to work together with Patty Bergemann, a local artist and painter, and her energetic assistant, Jorryn Foster, to create your own canvas for the project.
KVR Community Canvas Project Workshops with Patty and Joryyn: Two Wednesdays, Feb 13th and Feb 20th, 2-5pm.

Drop in at any point during the afternoon, materials will be provided. You can also bring some paints/pencils, fibers/collage materials or whatever supplies you can imagine for your project and we’ll have some fun creating together! Don’t think you can’t be artistic. Just cast your hesitations to the windchill and come out to play!

Story Time with Ms Cecilia continues each Tuesday morning at 10am. Next week will be a field trip to the Post Office to see how letters get delivered and to mail some Valentines!

And finally, mark your calendar for another exciting travel adventure with Monique and Phillip Hooker! This time we’ll visit Budapest and Slovenia, with a taste of Eastern Europe besides! Travels With Monique, Tuesday, February 26th, 5pm. More details to come…

Stay safe & warm,

Hello Dear Friends, Snowy season’s greetings!

We have two special events coming up right after Thanksgiving.

Tuesday, December 4th, 6pm
Winter Root Fermentation Workshop with Dana Scheffen
Learn the basics of lacto-fermentation and have a local gift to give. Kids are welcome with the supervision of an adult. Spots are limited. Sign up at the library or call, 624-5815.

Saturday, December 8th, 10am
Wonderful Weeds! Getting to know our backyard herbal friends

Join local naturalist, herbalist, and author Rachel Wolf, (Herbal Adventures: backyard excursions and kitchen creations for kids and their families) for an herbal adventure right here in the library!

Discover the wonderful weeds growing right in your own backyard. From dandelion to mullein; plantain to elderberry, we’ll discover that there’s much to love about the wild plants that grow in and around our neighborhoods. Touch, smell, and even taste a few wild edibles that are common here in the Driftless region. Then get your hands dirty making your own herbal “seed bombs” with native plant seeds. Back at home you can toss them into the corner of your garden, and see what helpful plants spring up next year! All ages are welcome.

See you at the Library and have a wonderful Holiday!

We have so much to be Thankful for…

Greetings Friends,

Just to make sure you know, the Library had NO FLOOD DAMAGE. We are so fortunate to be in the relocated Solar Village. In the ‘old’ village only one residence got flood water inside and that is our historic Victorian mansion, the Roth House. http://www.therothhouse.com/ The Soldiers Grove park, site of the original, flood-plagued village was devastated. The park has been home to the Driftless Art Festival which is coming up this weekend. But it has been relocated, just for this year.

Driftless Area Art Festival
Sat. Sept. 15 & Sun Sept. 16
Crawford County Fairgrounds
Hwy 131, Gays Mills, WI

Here are some October library events.

Story Time with Ms Cecelia

Tuesday mornings, 10am
October through May

Travels with Monique
October date TBA

And, for fans of radio plays, tune in to WDRT on 2 upcoming Sunday afternoons.
Onomatopoea – A Radio Drama

Find out about the Onomotopoeians (who?) who live along a gurgling river lazily winding its way across the valley. They congregate at a bookstore called Words.

That’s it for now. See you at the Art Festival!
