The library's display cabinet has hosted a wonderful array of collections in 2011!
From baseballs to cameras, from preschool artwork to honoring our veterans, the case has served as a physical place to see and learn about the diverse interests of our local population.
Join this illustrious bunch!
Many thanks to our 2011 displayers who included: Grace Preschool, Myron Tews, Rich Hopfensperger, Sheryl Block-Krause, Mariel Brown, the VFW, and Dennis Selchow.
The 2012 calendar is open for reservations.
At its November meeting, the Ripon Public Library Board of Trustees voted to increase fines from five cents per day to ten cents per day on non-video adult materials, effective on materials checked out after January 1, 2012. The fine increase will affect books, magazines, audio books and compact discs in the adult collections. The maximum fine limit on audio/visual items has also increased to $5 per item. Fines on children’s materials and on all videos remain the same. Please contact the library with any questions.
