Fox Valley Ghost Hunters: Paranormal Investigators

Leave the candy and costumes at home and come out for some real thrills this Halloween weekend! Ripon Public Library is excited to host the Fox Valley Ghost Hunters on Saturday, November 1 at 2 P.M.

Fox Valley Ghost Hunters was established to help residents of Wisconsin and the U.P. of Michigan understand paranormal activity in their homes or places of business. Meet the team, learn the ins and outs of their work, and witness evidence from the ghost hunters’ past investigations.

The Fox Valley Ghost Hunters team invites the audience to attend an investigation later that evening at 7 P.M. in Berlin. There is a charge of $12 per person for those wishing to attend this ghost hunting tour. The presentation at the library is free and open to the public. Please contact the library for any questions at 748-6160.

Construction Alert

Construction alert:  Jefferson Street is going to be resurfaced, meaning that the library’s parking lot will be temporarily inaccessible from that direction.  Work is tentatively set to begin on Friday, October 10.  During this time, library patrons may still access the library’s parking lot via Pacific Street.  Please drive carefully and thank you for your patience during this project.

Haiku Reviews - Our Reading Clubs Get Creative!

This week members of our two new reading clubs got creative at the library!  Readers wrote fun haiku reviews in order to book talk their selection for this month.  Unlike traditional book clubs, there are no assigned books.  Readers choose any book they'd like for that month and share their reading experience with the rest of the group - what they loved, what they didn't like, what they'd change, etc.  Shy?  No worries!  Prompts are provided each month to get the conversation flowing.  Bookin' It Up is our teen reading group for ages 13 & up and meets at the library on the fourth Thursday of the month at 2 p.m. during the summer.  Books N' Brew is the adult variation and meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 6 p.m. at Downhill Coffee (3 Harris Street in Ripon).

Do you have a haiku review that you'd like to share? Email submissions to for review.
