7/2/15 Every Hero Has A Story - Summer Reading Program

Every Hero Has A Story is the summer reading program theme, and our 1st hero to read to the children was Doug Stoll.

3/9/15 Library News - Lots of things coming up!

Both Markesan and Kingston libraries are actively collecting coins in the Penny War that started Feb. 16th and will end on March 16th.  Markesan was the challenger and Kingston is working hard to be a great competitor.  It is a fun rivalry between 2 close libraries and it benefits both with monies raised as well.  The loser of the challenge has to display a booby prize (provided by the winning library) for the following month.  So please, bring your pennies in today!!

2/5/15 News from the Mill Pond Library

 The latest display at the Mill Pond Library in Kingston is a collection of dolls owned by Marlene Kohn of Marquette.  When asked how she came to collect dolls Marlene replied, "I found most of them at Bargains Galore, and they cost $.50 or a $1.00.  I just felt sorry for them and had to take them home!"  Come check out the display before it changes...next up is a collection of snowmen!  If you have a collection you'd be willing to loan us to display for a month, give the library a call at 920-394-3281 or stop in and we'll make arrangements.
