Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

The Three R's Display in Hawkins

Arlene Mabie is not only the library director at Hawkins, she also is the clerk treasurer for the recycling/disposal unit in Kennan (as well as a volunteer fire fighter and miniature horse-raiser...can you say Superhero?).  She is motivated to encourage and educate people about reducing waste, re-using and recycling!

To celebrate Earth Day, she put together a display of books and included items made of recycled materials (bags, pens, pencils, and other office supplies).  Having something tangible made of recycled materials right there to see and touch makes it easier to see the point of recycling!
