 Audiobook Sync is running a fantastic summer program that involves free audiobook downloads ALL summer! Each week, 2 different books (one newish YA book and one classic literature book) will be available to download for FREE. You have just those 7 days to download the books, but then they are yours to keep FOREVER. All you need to provide is an email address. Then you can download the audiobook to your computer and play it using OverDrive Media Console (a free software download that plays nicely with Macs, PCs, iPhones, and Android devices). You can also transfer the titles to your iPod, iPhone, or other MP3 player directly from OverDrive. 

This program starts on Thursday, May 30th and posts the new titles each Thursday. That means every Thursday after that, all summer long, 2 new books will be available. Interested to hear what titles are coming up? Check out the list of free titles below!

Culver’s Restaurants Celebrate Reading During National Library Week “Communities Thrive @ your library”

Culver’s® restaurants and the Wisconsin Library Association Foundation are teaming up once again to kick-off the “COMMUNITIES THRIVE @ your library” drawing campaign. This is the fourteenth straight year local Culver’s restaurants in Wisconsin have sponsored this event, which encourages children to read and celebrate their favorite book characters.


During the month of April, children ages 11 and under can enter by picking up drawing sheets at the library. Children are encouraged to draw a book character that they would like to meet. When children return their coloring sheets to they will receive a “Be Our Guest” certificate for a free single scoop of frozen custard from participating Culver’s. They will also be entered into a random drawing to win an additional prize of a free Team Scoopie Kids Meal certificate. Drawings will be displayed at the library throughout the month of April.
