Wisconsin Humanities CARES Relief Grant 2020

 The Poy Sippi Public Library is both pleased and excited to let you know that we recently received a Wisconsin Humanities CARES Relief Grant in the amount of $4,513.00.  This grant is part of a special Wisconsin Humanities grant initiative that is providing funding to nonprofit humanities and cultural organizations facing financial hardship resulting from the COVID-19 coronavirus.  This grant supports our general operating expenses for a three-month period ending October 31, 2020.  (In our case, we requested funds to cover a one-month period.)  Funding for this relief grant was provided to Wisconsin Humanities by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan. Wisconsin Humanities is a non-profit organization whose mission is to strengthen the roots of the community life through support of educational and cultural programs that inspire civic participation and individual imagination for communities across Wisconsin.

"Put it On Hold, Please"

The Winnefox Library System is trying a new way to circulate materials in the catalog.  Now we have all 30 libraries sharing their materials.  What this means to you is this...titles, especially new titles, may not be here on the shelf, but we can request them for you.  Better still, you can go to the website and "Search the Catalog."  If you need any help with placing holds on any title, stop in and see us.  We'll be glad to help.  To make it a little easier for you, we now have a computer dedicated to the catalog, where you can easily access your account and place holds.

Calling All Knitters & Crocheters! Let's Get "Clicking!"

Are you interested in getting together at the library for an hour every once in  a while to knit or crochet purple baby caps?  If so, give Jeanne a call or stop in at the library.  As we gather interested knitters and crocheters, we can pick a day & time.  Why are we doing this?  It's for the babies!   The "Click for Babies" campaign is designed to get people talking about shaken baby syndrome, while providing hats as a reminder that babies can cry a lot and all babies go through this.  For more information about "Click for Babies" visit their website https://www.clickforbabies.org/.
