Looking for Easter Baskets

Believe it or not, the Annual Easter Egg Hunt is just a few weeks away.  This special event will be held at the library on Saturday, April 20.  We are looking for items for that day, Easter Baskets, grass for the baskets and new or gently used stuffed animals.  Our goal is to have a basket for every child that takes part in the hunt.  These donated items can be dropped off at the library during open hours.  Thank you, in advance, for your generous donations.

When does the Library Close?

Weather Closing Policy

The Poy Sippi Library closes when the Berlin School District closes due to inclement weather.  School closings are posted on the school’s website or can be found on local news stations.  When possible, the library closing announcement will be posted on the website, Additionally, if you call the library during normal hours of operation and no one answers the phone, we are probably closed.  Please feel free to leave a message. Materials left in the book drop are back-dated to the last day when the library was open.  Items can also be renewed on our website.

Great American Read - Which are Your Favorites?

We'd like your opinion on which of the 100 books from the Great American Read is the best.  In 2018 PBS held THE GREAT AMERICAN READ, an eight-part series that explored and celebrated the power of reading, told through the prism of America’s 100 best-loved novels (as chosen in a national survey)*.  It investigated how and why writers create their fictional worlds, how we as readers are affected by these stories, and what these 100 different books have to say about our diverse nation and our shared human experience.  A journey through America that introduces our list of the 100 best-loved books and explores the many ways in which these novels affect, reflect and connect us all.  Stop in and get a copy of the list.  Some you may have already read a number of the books on the list and some will be "new to you."  To celebrate National Reading Month in March, we'll hold our first "vote for your best book".  Watch the website for details.
