Catch Gypsy Mania at Books & Stars! Wed. June 29th at 7 pm

Gypsy Mania

Hot Club Swing Jazz

A spontaneous, vivid performance by some of Minnesota’s most stellar gypsy-jazz artists played in the Django Reinhardt French swing tradition of the 1930’s. Gypsy Mania features an exceptional stylistic dimension with prodigious improvisation – a group not to be missed.

Moving Books & Stars--- again! June 22

Ironically- it's too wet at the pool! After talking it all over with Allison the pool manager- it's just too wet at the pool.  The grass areas are soaked and muddy.  So we will have Book & Stars again at the nice and mostly dry Oddfellow's Park Pavilion.  Booker and Maria's Taco Hut will be open at 6:30.  The Rockin' tunes of T.H.E. House Band will start at 7.    Thanks everyone!!  Kathy

The Pages are ready for anything!

Hidden treasures in the library!! Just for summer reading fun.

Did you know the Library Pages created 11 "fake" items that are now in the children's area of the library?  They look like real books, cds, dvd etc! For the talented who find them they have special questions in them for you to answer and place in the "world globe" for another entry in the reader of the week drawing!  Ask a Library Page for hints!

Fun at the first Books & Stars of 2011

Books & Stars tonight will be at Oddfellow's Park!

Due to all the rain we received last night Books & Stars with POP WAGNER will be at Oddfellow's Park on Forest Ave.  Way Park is too soggy to hold the showmobile or Booker.  Booker will be at Oddfellow's Park along with Maria's Taco Hut and the Cocoa Bean.
