Soldiers Grove Library News

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

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!

Most remarkable Springtime Greetings!

This Saturday promises to be good weather for

Jane Schmidt and Finn to visit the Library!

(special visiting privileges for canines who are authors)

Saturday, April 21, 1pm

Soldiers Grove Library

Schmidt’s newest children’s book, Finnegan’s Springtime Guide, once again features her rat-terrier-mix buddy Finnegan as narrator. He invites the children on a search for spring and helps them discover bluebells, morels, spring beauties, turkey vultures, sandhill cranes, and more. Finn encourages the children to use their senses—look for bloodroots, smell skunk cabbage, and listen for spring peepers. The book includes a “Now You Know” section of interesting facts about each discovery, a glossary, and a section where children can write their own field notes.Finnegan’s Springtime Guide is a full-color book with photographs taken locally by the author in the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. “It’s an interactive book,” says Schmidt, “that inspires children to get outside and explore nature.”


Hope to see you there!

About the Canvas Project…

Today we are watching the weather, but have one more workshop with Pat Vance.

Everyone is invited to create an art piece inspired by Wisdom in Nature, to contribute to the Kickapoo Valley Reserve’s Creative Community Canvas Project

fundraiser. Pat has agreed to start at 1:30pm today. It’s a drop-in program, so after school time can work for families too. We have the 6"x6" canvases available and some supplies but you can also bring anything imaginable to add:) If you have already picked up a canvas & would like to finish it here, that’s great. If you do not use your canvas that’s okay, please return it. Remember, your work of art must be back at the Library or the Reserve by next Monday, Feb. 26th. We have some amazing canvases on display already, come see them. What a fun program!

Greetings Everyone, It’s February and we’re on our way out of winter!

This month the Library is 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 WISDOM as its theme. Participants receive a 6-inch-by 6-inch canvas to artistically interpret the word Wisdom asit 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 26th, either at the Reserve or the Library. Next week we will have two opportunities to work with Pat Vance, a local artist and painter, to create a canvas for the project. Workshops with Pat: Monday, Feb 19th, 1:30 pm and Tuesday, Feb 20 at 10am.

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. Yes you can and there’s wisdom in that:)

Tuesday StoryTimes with Ms Cecelia

Feb 13 & Feb 27, 10am

Valentine Penguins Are Coming tomorrow!


Warmly,

~Cele
