Teen Read Week

We want more teens to come into the library, especially on their days of remote learning from school! This year we will be having a giveaway drawing for any teenager that checks out books during that week! We have a YETI tumbler to give away the end of that week! Here’s how it works: Teenage individual comes in and checks out books then for EACH BOOK they check out, they can put their name in the drawing! So if you check out 10 books your name goes in 10 times for the drawing for a Navy Blue Yeti Tumbler and handle accessory!!

National Friends of the Libraries Week

The Neillsville Public Library gets by with a little help from our Friends and Community…. actually, we get by with A TON OF HELP from our friends with the NEILLSVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY FOUNDATION!! The Foundation was established in 2008 and that group has given money over the recent years to fund many items and programs at the library. From children’s summer reading programming, new furniture, and contributions to the new and emerging technology needs plus support for staff and director training…all of these have been funded by our Library Foundation group!! October 18th-24 and the National Friends Of Libraries Week is a perfect time and opportunity for our Neillsville Public Library staff to give our Friends at the Neillsville Library Foundation a big SHOUT OUT for all they do to make a difference for us every single day! We ask everyone to join us to Celebrate Friends of the Library Week and thank the Foundation for all they do to make our library and community so much better!
