Summer Greetings Everyone!

Just a reminder that TOMORROW

Tuesday, July 23, 10am-11:30

Dan Nedrelo, Critter Man
The Gays Mills and Soldiers Grove Public Libraries are happy to bring Dan Nederlo: Critter Man to a creek side near you. Dan will bring several small mammals, reptiles, and amphibians for a hands-on experience you won’t want to miss. What better way to learn about the wild animals in our region than to get to see, feel, hear, and even smell them up close? The event will take place near the creek in Peterson Park, 103 Sunbeam Blvd E, which is behind Burkum’s Hardware in Soldiers Grove, or in the Soldiers Grove Library if it’s raining.

And next week:
Award-winning band leader and accordionist Mike Schneider brings his ‘Pint Size Polkas’ to the Community Room at the CCC in Gays Mills. This fun-filled 45-minute show will have kids of all ages laughing, moving and learning with Mike’s unique blend of magic, humor, and wonderful polka music. The show is titled ‘Music and Magic from the Polkaverse’ so we’ll be learning about our universe and space travel. Go to for a sneak-peek. This FREE event is co-sponsored by the Soldiers Grove and Gays Mills Public Libraries.

See you soon!
