Celebrate A Day of Listening by Playing Family & Friends BINGO!
Did you know the day after Thanksgiving has traditionally been known as a Day of Listening? This is an opportunity to listen to older members of your family tell stories about and share memories of their childhoods and lives growing up.
Knowing that many families won’t be gathering in person this year, we have created some conversation starters that can make your Zoom or Facetime call more enjoyable! We will use completed Bingo cards as entries for a random prize drawings!
We are excited to announce, for your convenience, that you can select the Central Library Pickup Window as the location to pick up your holds – no need to schedule a time – just drive (or walk) up during our Pickup Window hours once you are notified your holds are ready. Visit our Contactless Pickup page for step-by-step instructions.
Annual appeal for new books runs through December 10!
Now more than ever, we are so grateful for your support of the Friends of the Brown County Library and their mission to support literacy and the Give-A-Kid-A-Book program that gifts children in low-income families with new books.
Together, we make a difference by providing books that children can call their own.
