Give yourself the gift of a fine free New Year by signing up for due date reminders though Elf.
Elf is an independent, web-based service and email tool for library users to keep track of their library borrowings.
Designed with the busy or avid library user in mind, Elf is ideal for families with multiple library cards or for individuals (writers, researchers, students, etc.) who have cards from different libraries.
Elf makes it easier to keep track of what's soon to be due, overdue or ready for pickup from one or more library accounts. Users have the option to consolidate their library account notices into one emailed reminder if they wish.
Open to teens in 6th-12th grade only. Join us for an after-hours evening at the library. Computers, video games, snacks & hanging out with friends. Participants must be on time and stay for the entire evening.
All participants must have a permission slip to attend the late night. Slips may be picked up at the youth desk the week before. Only 45 spots available! Only one slip will be given to each teen.
Lester Public Library is pleased to announce the development of the Anne DeSwarte Early Literacy Center in the youth area of the library. Using annuities left to the library by Anne DeSwarte the Library Board of Trustees will invest in the future of Two Rivers and Manitowoc County by creating a space designed and filled with materials that will appeal to beginning readers. Look for the Anne DeSwarte Early Literacy Center to be up and running by mid-February.
The Buildings and Grounds committee of the LPL Board of Trustees met in October to discuss proposals memorializing Anne’s gifts. Terry Ehle, Youth Coordinator, proposed designating a portion of the children’s area of the library as an early literacy center. Terry’s proposal included the purchase of early learning materials, like phonics readers and games, along with new shelving to house the collection. At their November meeting the Board approved $9,983.89 from the Library Gift Account to cover costs.
Through books, games, and toys provided in the Anne DeSwarte Early Literacy Center the library is supporting new readers in the important developmental years, birth through the first grade. A “one stop shop” point for children and their parents to read, discover the world around them, connect with new ideas, and ultimately enrich their lives and community through learning.
