Our Big Read title hit the big screen this weekend. Although it has received mixed reviews from critics it had a great opening weekend.
Menomonie Public Library will be implementing an ongoing early literacy initiative called 1000 Books Before Kindergarten. We plan on kicking off this program on May 14, 2013. This multiyear project will be used to encourage parents to read aloud at least 1000 books with their children age birth up to before they enter school. The program is open to any preschooler in Menomonie and surrounding communities. According to the US Census Bureau, Menomonie’s population has 651 children under the age of 5. Our initial goal for the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program is to reach and involve 200 (or more!) of these children over a two year period.

The author of 97 views of Lake Menomin invites you to attend this reading. This reading will be a verbal/visual anecdotal story of the U.W.-Stout Art Department, it’s beginnings in 1964 and Mr. Schulman’s beginnings in 1966 as an Artist and developing Art Educator. It also records the author wrestling with verbal and visual relationships that eventually climb into poetry. The poetry included will help describe his artistic philosophy.
