Hickory Nut Fun!

L-R: Harry and Millie Bowey, hickory nut expert Sarah Naparalla.

Hickory nut expert Sarah Naparalla was on hand at the Poy Sippi Public Library on Thursday, Oct. 21, to talk about how to find, store, crack, and shell hickory nuts. There’s more to it than you’d think! Everyone was able to try their own hands at cracking and shelling and most left with a handful of nuts. Some freshly baked hickory nut cookies were served and a good time was had by all. Next up on the library’s agenda is a Nov. 11, 7 p.m. talk by Jim Leuenberger, project coordinator for the Barn Quilts of Shawano County project

Story hour is back!

We will be starting up our in-person storytime once again beginning Monday, Oct. 4, at 10:30 a.m.  Please join us for a reading of Little Ghoul Goes to School with an activity and refreshment (pickle and fishbone cookies!) to follow. See you there!

Native American Artifacts!

Paul Schanen, author of Native American Artifacts of Wisconsin, was on hand Wednesday evening at the Poy Sippi Public Library to talk about arrowheads, atlatls, omarolluks, and other interesting items. Fourteen people attended the event, many of them bringing in their own artifacts collected over the years.

In the photo below, Gabrielle and Wyatt Lemberger show off their arrowhead, which they learned is about 2,000 years old and made of chirt. In the other photo, Schanen demonstrates how an atlatl was used.
