The Sauk Trail Elementary School won a grant from American Girl and created works of art to reflect changes over time in the environment.  This inter-generational project was also influenced by senior citizens' anecdotes. An exhibit of these beautiful works will be at the library starting the evening of August 25.

Charlie turns 50 this year, just like the Rosemary Garfoot Public Library! Let's have a grand birthday celebration by reading the original story, and then watching the movie together. A chocolate treat from Sjolind's Chocolate House will be enjoyed by all who attend! And one lucky winner will find a golden ticket at the program. This ticket will be good for a tour of Sjolind's Chocolate House in Mt. Horeb, including a personal demonstration of how they make their amazing and delicious chocolates!
