Book cover with drawing of Willy Wonka and some candy.Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl

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!

For more information or to sign up please contact Catherine at 798-3881
