Join us on Thursday, February 26 at 7 pm in the library’s cozy, warm auditorium for a big screen showing of the 1943 Academy Awards Best Picture winner Casablanca. The movie is free and there will be refreshments and a drawing for movie tickets to the Park Theatre! Thursday is only 3 days away…until then you can practice your best Bogie imitation or even better, hum As Times Goes By. We look forward to seeing you there!
It’s Mardi Gras time! Come and join us for the annual Park Falls Friends of the Library Mardi Gras Book Sale on Friday, February 13 from 10 am – 6 pm and also on Saturday, February 14 from 10 am – 2 pm. There will be tables, tables, and more tables of gently used books, av items, children’s books, puzzles, and as always a few surprises. We’ll have bags and boxes for you to fill and we’ll even bring them out to your car. We’ll also have my favorite part…great Mardi Gras music! Come early and stay long; we look forward to seeing you!
When you walk into the library lobby next week, look down, and then look around. You will see new linoleum, new carpet, new chairs at the computers, and new mats under the chairs. Wow! I can hardly wait until Monday!
The library has had a number of inquiries about tax forms. We have for many years participated in the tax distribtution program and have had forms and instructions available free of charge. We are still a part of that program but we have received no forms yet. We fully expect to receive the forms but we do not know when they will be shipped nor do we know if all the forms and instructions that we ordered will be available.
During this time we ask for your patience. If you want to save a trip into town, please feel free to give us a call at 715-762-3121. We will be happy to help with any inquiries you may have.
Tired of the cold weather? Stop in the library soon! We have a great collection of books, dvds, computers for public use…and heat!
In the lobby you’ll find a of display of materials that remember some of the authors, musicians, and actors who passed away in 2014. Along with familiar names like Robin Williams, Maya Angelou, and Pete Seeger you’ll find other not so familiar names like Maria von Trapp (the real life Maria from the Sound of Music), David Legeno (Greyback from the Harry Potter movies), and Dick Jones (the voice of Pinocchio).
Did I mention we have big comfy chairs in the lobby too? Come in and try one out for an afternoon. We’re open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 8 pm and on Saturdays from 10 am – 2 pm.
Fridays are cataloging days at the library, which means new items are entered into the system and begin the journey to become library materials. Today I cataloged a nice stack of music cds and new dvds. They need to be processed and then they will be out for you to see. Here are just a few of the titles that will be available soon!
