Off the Shelf: Ann Larson ‘at home’ in the library | subscriber

Message from Director Molly Lank-Jones

Welcome back, everyone, after emerging from a long winter. The library staff and I are happy to confirm that the library is open and in full swing. Our hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 10 am to 5 pm, Tuesday from 10 am to 7 pm, and Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm Curbside pickup is still available for everyone’s convenience. Just give us a call at (715) 634-2161 to schedule a pickup time.
