Book Club - A Man Called Ove

Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time? Behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox, it is the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of which will change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.

Email the library or call 920-987-5737 to get a copy of A Man Called Ove. Also available in large text and on CD.

Please join us at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 26, at the library. Refreshments will be served.

Sign Painting 101


We're all set for an afternoon of sign painting fun at 2 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 27, at the library. Ashley Hamilton from Front Street Creations in Coloma will be on hand to guide us in how to paint our own signs, like the one pictured above, for our home. Registration is required for this event, and there is a $20 charge for painting one sign (or $35 for two signs). Upon registering at the library, participants make a $5 down payment and select which sign they would like to paint and what color they would like the chosen board to be. The remaining money is due the night of the event. Ashley brings all the needed supplies with her. Registration is limited to 10 participants, so stop by now!
