Happenings at the Library
Withee Public Library celebrated 100 Years in 2019!
Harrowing Tales & Thrilling Music Await Withee This June!
The Withee Public Library is bringing some exciting new events to Withee Days and beyond this year. First, we have logger and author Gary Edinger, whose book “Will to Live: A Saga of Survival” recounts his personal ordeal of being injured out in the woods and forced to make the difficult choice of amputating his own leg in order to survive. He will be at the Withee Public Library on Saturday, June 15 from 10AM to 5PM to talk of his experience, answer questions, and sell copies of his incredible book.
If you decide to swing on by to hear this tale or just to say hello during the week, we recommend you have some fun and check out our Book Sale that will be taking place from June 11-15 during our normal hours. If these book hunts put you in a nostalgic mood, be sure to check out our latest display showing off surviving copies of everything from Children’s books to American History preserved from the Withee Library’s earliest beginnings.
And if you were afraid that all the fun may end when Withee Days is over, there will be an additional surprise still awaiting you. On Friday, June 28 we’ll see the return of popular musician Randy Peterson, who will be performing his “Rockin’ Around the Universe Musical Tour” at the Owen-Withee Elementary School at 10AM. Admission will be free for both children and adults, and remember to arrive early.
HOURS: Mon., Tues., Thurs., Fri. 10AM to 5 PM. Sat. 10 AM to 2 PM. Closed on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Children’s Activities for May
Earth Day—What does it mean to you? Come into the Library and go to the Children’s room and make a poster showing it. Use the paper and stickers we provide. Take it home with you. If you have not had your picture taken to put on our space rocket, we can take of that too. While you’re at it, swing by to see our second spaceship design, including robotic space invaders if you dare. And don’t forget the many other activities to do as always. Books, DVD, audio books, and more. Picture books in the adult sections are also available Reflect on your past while you teach your children or grandchildren. Children can sign up at the desk to win the prize for May. April’s winner was Stefan. He chose a special glass just for himself.
