Sarah & Kristine Talk Books
Our presenter, Pamela Ekholm, is an Archives Assistant at the History Center at the Great Lakes Visitor’s Center. Ekholm will provide an introduction to what the History Center is and what they have to offer and will also discuss other available resources. She will also show us how to use Ancestry Library Edition, a database available through Northern Waters libraries; teaching us how to navigate through some of the available search engines. We’ll have our public access computers turned on for the afternoon, giving those wishing to do so an opportunity to use Ancestry Library Edition while there’s someone around to assist. The presenter notes that this will be an introductory program, not geared toward seasoned genealogists.
There is no need to register for this MAKERSPACE event and no fee to participate.
A MAKERSPACE presents an opportunity to learn a new skill or craft or useful and creative techniques to “do it yourself” and a MAKERSPACE can encompass anything you might want to learn, and is about learning to think…and do…yourself.
Trustee Vacancy - 2017
The role of Trustee is vital to the success of the library. Trustees attend monthly Board meetings, review and approve the annual library budget, participate in the development of library policies and work with the Library Director to ascertain that community needs are being appropriately addressed by the library. It is work, but, it is important and gratifying work.
The existing Board of Trustees will review applicants and forward their recommendation to the Town of Cable Board of Supervisors. Appointments are for three year terms, commencing immediately upon appointment by the Town of Cable Board of Supervisors. A Trustee may serve two consecutive three year terms.
Big News from a Little Library
Why are these people smiling? Well, the rumor you've heard is true. The library ... well, technically the Towns of Cable & Namakagon... purchased the Aldrich property adjacent to the library. We're very excited! We look forward to working with our neighbors, our Towns, our patrons and area businesses in visioning the sort of library addition that will provide wanted and needed services. Stay tuned!
If you would like to be part of our visioning effort we’d be happy and grateful for your input! Please contact Library Director Kristine Lendved, or one of our Board Trustees and let us know you’re interested in participating.
