Hello Friends, Happy Summer!
Our Toddler Time season has ended until Autumn, but here are some events coming up for all ages to enjoy.
Tuesday, June 23, the Soldiers Grove and Gays Mills libraries, along with North Crawford Schools will co-sponsor a visit from Service Dogs of Wisconsin. A non-profit organization based in Verona, Wi, the all-volunteer staff works to train and partner service dogs with individuals with mobility impairments to enhance their independence and confidence, while providing companionship. Julie Denu, a trainer, will be bringing Agape, an 18 month old Golden Retriever, to help demonstrate & explain how these heroic dogs are trained to assist. There will be two opportunities to attend this program at North Crawford Schools, 47050 County Road X, in the morning at 10am and after lunch, at 12:45.

In between these events, you are always welcome to visit. We have wonderful photographs on display by master photographer Ron Byers, from his trip to Cuba last November. He and his wife, Phant, participated in a ‘people-to-people’ tour to Cuba as part of a Witness for Peace delegation. The framed pictures will be displayed at the library until August, when they will go to Ron’s booth at the Driftless Art Festival.
