Calling all Algoma and Kewaunee Library Patrons! Our libraries are hosting a PENNY WAR to raise money for a local organization - Violence Intervention Project here in Kewaunee County. We are having this fun month-long competition to see which library and it's patrons can raise the most money. The prize? BRAGGING RIGHTS! To participate, stop in your library branch to contribute to our PENNY WAR jar. Ends September 30th!
As a library, we want to continuously give back to our community whether it is having fun in a competition like this or attending programs we have each month for our patrons. Libraries are a place of empowerment. A place where people can come in to utilize our library for our public computers, access media resources, get technology help and so much more. So, if you don't have a library card stop by today to get one! We can't wait to meet you.
Teens, are you ready for Halloween? If you are looking for spooky reading recommendations, movies to watch, and crafts to do with friends, stop by the library starting October 21st at 10 AM to pick up our "What a Scare" kit.
Kits are limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
Kids- Take one of these kits to make some fun fall themed puppets. Available Tuesday, October 12th while supplies last.

Meeting on the second Tuesday of every month at 1 PM, join Braelyn for Adult Creative Writing. We will have writing prompts and activities for those looking for inspiration. The first hour will be used for brainstorming and writing, the time left will be for sharing our pieces (for those that would like to). All materials will be provided by the Library (paper, pens, pencils). Sharing of new or old pieces is encouraged, but not required.
It's been a 150 years since the Peshtigo Fire devastated the northeastern part of Wisconsin burning 1.2 million acres. Countless counties including Kewaunee and Door were also affected. Join us as author and local historian, Virginia Feld Johnson, discusses her latest book, "When the Night Rained Fire". It was believed Kewaunee County would never rise from the ashes. But, as it was, many came to feel Kewaunee County's greatest tragedy was a blessing in disguise. When the fields were cleared, the ashes became fertilizer, and new homes were built better than the old. Good qualities of fellow citizens came forward, and life changed.
Join us for an afternoon of creative, hands-on fun in our pop-up makerspace! We’ll feature art, tinkering, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) activities. Join us on the first Wednesday of the month for a different activity! this program is aimed at patrons ages 9 and up.
Kids- Try your luck at puzzles. This month's theme: Word Searches on Tuesday, October 5th while supplies last.
