Join us for wonderful conversation, laughter, learning - and snacks! Our book club meets the first Monday of the month at 10am.  We have books for checkout (including large print copies) at our circulation desk.

January is our annual "book potluck."(We don't bring food - though if you want to, who are we to say no?!) We bring a book recommendation or two to share with the group. You don't need a physical copy if you don't have one. It's a nice time to gather some book ideas to read in the upcoming year.

With prepper & survivalist Jim Cobb

Emergency evacuation, known in the prepper world as “bugging out,” means leaving a dangerous area and heading to one that is believed to be safer. However, is this always the best idea?  Jim Cobb will demystify this often misunderstood concept.  He will discuss when to stay and when you should leave, choosing your destination, items that should (and shouldn’t) be in your bug out bag and how to craft a few items yourself to save money.

 

 

 

 

Thursday, February 27, 6:30 pm

Co-sponsored by PFLAG Mount Horeb Area.  

In 2015 our community hosted a reading of I am Jazz, a story about a transgender child. This event sparked a movement.  Mount Horeb's unwavering support of transgender youth began an annual international movement. Communities across the country have joined Human Rights Campaign's Welcoming Schools program and the National Education Association (NEA) for the annuaJazz & Friends National Day of School and Community Readings. This evening at our library includes a reading of I am Jazz, other books supporting trans and non-binary youth and a special message from Jazz Jennings herself.

From Installation to Texture

 

 

Have you ever cut and hung your own drywall? What about taping & mudding or sanding & texturing? Have you tried to patch damaged drywall and make it blend-in with the existing finish? If you have done these types of projects and they were a bit of a struggle, or didn't turn out as well as you hoped...you should join us for this class! Sometimes techniques and strategies make a big difference...sometimes it's having the right tools...and sometimes it's knowing what products work best or make sense in each situation. Let's go over the basics and all become better drywallers, because chances are, if you own a home...you will have to do drywall work at some point.

 

 

 

Thursday, March 5, 1:00 pm

With Joy Schmidt, Dementia Care Specialist for the Dane County Aging & Disability Resource Center

 

Joy Schmidt will share what the current research is saying about reducing our risk for developing dementia. Take away strategies and tips to start living a brain healthy life as well as resources if you are concerned about your memory or changes you see in someone else.

 

 

Saturday, March 28, 10:00 am

Documentary Film featuring German forester and best-selling author Peter Wohlleben (The Hidden Life of Trees) and scientist Suzanne Simard (The University of British Columbia, Canada)

Trees are so much more than rows of wood waiting to be turned into furniture, buildings or firewood. They are more than organisms producing oxygen or cleaning the air for us. They are individual beings that have feelings, know friendship have a common language and look after each other. This documentary explores the various ways that trees communicate with each other- from a forester's observations as well as through the microscope of a scientist.
