Events for the week of July 9th, 2018

From Director, Krissa Coleman


Summer is flying by and we all feel it as the 4th of July is now a memory.  We are getting prepared with the exciting Touch-a-Truck event on July 18, 10-1 pm at the Roberts Park.  We are partnering with the Village of Roberts, Roberts and Warren Fire and Rescue, the Roberts Police Department, WITC, St. Croix County, Nilssen’s Foods, local farmers and citizens to bring together an amazing array of semi trucks, fire trucks, tractors, big machines, ambulance and even a helicopter.  This event is probably the highlight of the summer for families involved in our summer reading program.  This year, we have added a fundraiser for the library parking lot and we will be selling hot dogs, water and icee pops.  We look forward to watching the little ones in awe of the equipment displayed!
