Hazel Mackin Community Library

Events for the week of February 11th, 2019

From Director, Krissa Coleman


Chef Peter Kwong


Do you love Chinese food?  If so, we have a great program for you!  February 21st, 5:30 pm Chef and Author, Peter Kwong will be joining us for a Chinese 101 wok cooking demonstration. His recipes are easy and simple to follow, and so are the cooking procedures. Many times, his students would taste the foods that they made, and exclaimed, “My, this is the best I have yet tasted; and it is so easy and simple!” Why waste a lot of time searching for different ingredients, and more time in prepping and cooking?” Peter’s philosophy about eating is to share and have fun. Agree? Please register for this program by calling the library at 715-749-3849 so we can be prepared to have enough food to sample.

Story Time: Mondays and Wednesdays, 10:30-11:15 am.  Bring your children ages 4 and under and look forward to lots of laughs and learning. Story time includes: songs, finger play, stories, crafts, sensory bins and a theme each week. February 11th and 13th will be Valentine’s Day, February 18th and 20th will be Dinosaurs and February 25th and 27th will be Music and Dance.

Tech Night: Thursday, February 14th, 4:450 7 pm.  Please call the library to register for your 30 minutes time slot.  Barb can help with all things technical. She has a great way of helping you with all kinds of devices and issues.

Paws to Read: Julie and Ole will be here February 21st, 5-7 pm.  Reading to a trained therapy dog can help build reading confidence and skills.

Stitchers: this group meets every Friday 12:30-3 pm.  

Crocheters and Knitters:  This group meets every Thursday, 2:15-5 pm. If you can’t come during this time, feel free to bring in your projects and grab a friend to come in and work in the evening.  We have people always using the library for a variety of reasons and we have some great spots to enjoy conversations and get something done at the same time.

Strong Seniors: this group meets every Tuesday and Thursday, 1-2 pm.  Chair workouts are done with light hand weights. In this cold season, come on in to get your body moving!

Senior Coffee and Cookies: every Friday, 10-12 pm.  This is a fantastic way to come together and enjoy conversations, play some games and find out about what is going on in our community.  We are seeing new faces every month so don’t let the fact that this program has been ongoing for so long prevent you from stopping by!

The parking lot fundraiser is ongoing and the Library Board is currently working toward raising $77,253 to pay off the extended lot and prepare the way for pavement. We are currently in the Double this Donation campaign and are excited to see that people are realizing the need to get this paid for and support our library and all of the programs and activities and we provide. Thank you!!!
