One of the things I love most about my job is that I am involved in a variety of tasks, which allows me to learn and exercise many different skills. Lately, my focus has been on creating exhibits for the state bicentennial which will be on display for the rest of the year. This has been an incredibly rewarding challenge. With each exhibit, I feel I am learning so much, and the exhibits are improving as a result. One that I am particularly pleased with is the exhibit on World War II.

Madison Library to host second annual “Adulting” series…

"Adulting" is any task or activity that holds a feeling of weighty responsibility or drudgery, any task that someone who has their life all together might find easy.

The library has an ever-expanding role as the purveyor of information – not just for research projects, but for hobbies, STEM careers, and entertainment - why not also provide information for young adults who want to be successful in life outside of school?

 

Last summer we hosted a series of educational programs at the library geared toward new and young adults that focused on the drudgery of adulthood, like laundry, social media, home maintenance, and personal finance.

Big Z has been known to stop by storytimes on occasion. He loves interacting with the kids - especially if he can show off his Chicken Dance - and he always fills his wings with generous gifts!
