Do you have a favorite recipe you think everyone should know about? Looking for something new to make this holiday season? Join us for a recipe and food swap. Each attendee is asked to bring a copy of the recipe and samples of the dish to share. Entrees, side dishes, main courses, and desserts are welcome. The library will put together a cookbook will all the recipes. Participants will receive a free copy of the cookbook. Others will be able to purchase a copy from the Gift Shop. Registration is required.

Have a recipe you want included but can’t make it to the swap? You can email it to the library at or drop off a recipe card at the 2nd floor reference desk.


Fun Fine Motor Skills to Promote Handwriting

Mondays, October 24th | 6:00 pm

Join us for a three part program series.

This program is presented by Tiffany Anewenter-Grinker, Occupational Therapist with KidReach Pediatric Therapy Specialists. It will address writing readiness skills along with the use of preparation techniques to instill good writing habits, appropriate writing grips, proper positioning, upper-body strength and eye coordination activities. A multi-sensory approach is used to make handwriting more fun and enjoyable.

The October 10th session will focus on capital letters, the October 17th session will focus on lower case and the October 24th session will focus on numbers. Attend 1, 2, or all 3 sessions. A brief overview of the last session will take place at each new session. This program is geared for parents and caregivers, but children are welcome to attend. The library will provide puzzles and coloring sheets.

Registration is required. Please register at the Youth Services Reference Desk or call 262-754-1814. All 3 programs will take place in the Youth Program Room on the first floor.

This information will help the state determine what areas need to be prioritized, and look to provide robust connectivity in areas that are currently lacking support. Any information you can provide is extremely helpful.
