The Library Lowdown

The Elm Grove Public Library, established and supported by the citizens of Elm Grove, provides access to library facilities, resources, and services necessary to meet the informational, educational, and leisure needs of all the people in the community. It assembles, preserves, and administers an organized collection of print and non-print materials to fill those needs. It places special emphasis on stimulating interest and life-long appreciation for reading and learning among children and adults alike

Celebrate National Library Week with two great events for all ages, this Friday and Saturday at the Elm Grove Public Library.

While National Library Week does not officially begin until April 13, the Elm Grove Library and the Friends of the Elm Grove Library are kicking things off early this weekend with two great events the whole family will enjoy.  

This Friday, April 11, the library will welcome children’s entertainer David Landau at 10:30am for a morning of song, dance, stories, and laughter. Landau has received numerous honors for his program, including 2013 Best Kids Entertainment by Madison Magazine. According to his website, Landau’s shows are “educational, upbeat musical programs that involve children as active participants. The kids sing, move, act, dance, shout just a little bit, laugh a bunch, and learn some very important things.” This fun-filled morning of entertainment is free to attend and is ideal for children from pre-K through second grade. There is no need to register for this event; just show up ready to have a blast.


David Landau's visit to the library last summer was a huge hit!

David Landau’s musical performance in the library marks the beginning of National Library Week, which occurs April 13-19, and is now in its 56th year celebrating the contributions of our nation's libraries and librarians. The week also marks the return of the Culver’s coloring contest. Kids can come into the library anytime during National Library Week and pick up their entry. As in past years, kids will make a picture on the official form and when they turn it in they will receive a coupon for a free scoop of custard.  All entries will also be eligible for a drawing for 2 free kids' meals.

The fun does not end there however. Make sure to come back on Saturday, April 12 for “See a Juggler, Be a Juggler,” presented by the Friends of the Elm Grove Library. Join high-energy professional juggler Jason Kollum as he presents a funny, interactive, total participation program where children become the jugglers. This free event will be taking place from 2:00-3:00 pm in the courtroom of the Elm Grove Village Hall. “See a Juggler, Be a Juggler” is open to all ages, and no reservations are required, but all children must be accompanied by an adult. The winners of the Young Poets Contest will also be announced during the event.

If you have any questions about either event, call the Elm Grove Public Library at (262) 782-6717.
