Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Saturday, April 20 at 10 AM

It's time for the Poy Sippi Library Annual Easter Egg Hunt (hopefully outside this year, not like last year!)  on Saturday, April 20th, 10 am. 

Children up to Grade 4 are invited to participate and be sure to register to win a door prize.  Special "thank you" to everyone who helps make this a very fun event. They include  Loyal 4-H, who stuffs and hides all the eggs.  They did such a great job last year hiding eggs inside, that we continued to find them all year round!  To the volunteers who donate items for the baskets and help assemble them, to the Board Members and members of the community for their time and donations.

STEAM Power: Wednesdays Starting March 27 at 4:30 pm

Come and explore the world through creative projects!  Invite your school-age friends to exciting activities all about Space.  Heidi Hensel-Buntrock, UW 4-H Advisor, will be presenting these fun and rewarding science activities on Wednesdays at 4:30 March 27th through April 17.  There is no cost for the programs and all materials are provided.

If you want to have more "Space" experiences, join us this Summer, starting Monday mornings, June 17th at 10:30 am through July 22nd.  Some of the highlights include: Learning how to assemble a weather station and predict the weather with MSgt T.

Square Foot Gardening Workshop Monday, April 15 at 2:00 pm

POY SIPPI LIBRARY PRESENTS…Square Foot Gardening

Monday, April 15, 2019 at 2:00 pm --

Everett Eckstein, Master Gardener

This type of gardening was developed by Mel Bartholomew in the late 1970s and has been featured on PBS, the Discovery Channel and has been taught all over the United States and countless foreign countries. Anyone from age 3 to 93 can garden this way because there is no digging, hoeing or actual work. Also being taught at the class is how to do vertical gardening, all of which cuts down the space ·needed to garden.

 

The fee to attend the event is one non-perishable food item for the Poy Sippi Food Pantry. Space is limited, so please call the Poy Sippi Library at 920-987-5737 to make a reservation.

Books on "Square Foot Gardening, The Revolutionary Way to Grow More in Less Space" will be available for purchase at the class.
