Storytime is on break until the summer program begins. Join us on Tuesday, June 16th for our first SuperTots storytime, and THURSDAY, June18th for the first SuperKids Booktime.
Every Hero Has a Story
. . . is our summer theme this year. We will celebrate all types of heroes: superheroes, folk and historical heroes, animal heroes, community heroes, family heroes and our own inner heroes! Keep track of how much you read each week for a chance to spin the Big Wheel, and to earn pet food for a community donation to the Dane County Humane Society. Join us for special performances, storytimes, workshops and other fun activities. We’ll celebrate at the end of our program with a grand finale EVENING POOL PARTY. Registration begins June 15th at the library, or sign up starting June 1st right here!

The Tale of Despereaux
by Kate DiCamillo
Welcome to the story of Despereaux Tilling, a mouse who is in love with music, stories, and a princess named Pea. It is also the story of a rat called Roscuro, who lives in the darkness and covets a world filled with light. And it is the story of Miggery Sow, a slow-witted serving girl who harbors a simple, impossible wish. These three characters are about to embark on a journey that will lead them down into a horrible dungeon, up into a glittering castle, and, ultimately, into each other’s lives. And what happens then? As Kate DiCamillo would say: Reader, it is your destiny to find out.
After our book discussion we will watch the movie. Sign up and get a copy of the book at the library service desk.
