Thanks all, who read, watched, participated and enjoyed our summer reading program. It was a great success! Here are some photos from our grand finale children’s auction. $1,106 “reading bucks” were spent!
Aha! The day you’ve all been reading towards: our end of the summer-reading-program children’s auction. Each 15 minutes of reading= $1.00 of spending money. ( Gotta cap you readers off at “$100” though!) Even if you haven’t been diligently keeping track of your reading hours, do come. We will figure something out.
This year auctioneer Zeke Garthwaite will be here to lead the show. We have lots of great items to bid on. . . see you there!
3pm Wednesday July 20th. Wear walking shoes, it will be fun to see what will be in store(y) for us!
Argyle Library is happy to invite Sarah Pierce of the Driftless Conservancy back to host another program (she led the way on our Aldo Leopold day back in March). This time, in conjunction with our summer reading program, we will meet off-site, at the ERICKSON WETLANDS TRAIL HEAD. (To get there, follow the parking lot behind the town park, past the ballfield and you will find it!)

Folklife ~ Your Life!”
Folklore Village is a nationally recognized folk arts and culture center dedicated to enriching lives through time-honored traditions.
3210 CTY BB Dodgeville WI 53533
“Snakes Alive” is a national touring program that offers an exciting, hands-on, educational experience. With a wide variety of live animals, “Snakes Alive” lets you interact “up close and personal” to discover first-hand the fascinating world of reptiles. Learn their role in nature and caring for them in captivity as Herpetologist, Tom Kessenich lets you touch, hold and even talk to his friendly “critters”.
For every 15 minutes of logged reading time, kids will earn $1 ( a pretend dollar!) to use at the children’s reading auction on July 27th. (Note, you reading fanatics, we’re capping you off at $100. You can however, read above and beyond!)
Speaking of which, the library is accepting donations of gently used items for the auction. These could range from toys to gift certificates, cake mixes and art supplies. Anything kids like!
