Horicon Marsh Storybook Trail
New for 2022, the library will partner with the Horicon Marsh Education Center. Visit the Indermuehle Island Hiking Trail, and you'll find the Storybook Trail woven amongst the trees. The library will provide monthly nature-based stories, the first being Snack, Snooze, Skedaddle: How Animals Get Ready for Winter by Laura Purdie Salas.
We hope to make the Storybook Trail a location you'll want to frequently visit with your family, enjoying the sights, sounds, and smells of the everchanging seasons on the beautiful marsh. The route winds its way around a wooded loop and is about a mile long, accessible from the Education Center on Hwy 28 via a wooden boardwalk. The All Trails app rates it "good for all skill levels," perfect for all ages.
It's that time of year, with autumn leaves drifting down in the cooler breezes. That means Halloween and Christmas are right around the corner. The Friends of Horicon Library would love to help you round out your holiday giving by offering an opportunity to pick up a unique handmade treasure or two and a box of the best chocolates. There's a wide assortment to choose from, but be sure to come early to pick out your favorite since they'll only be available while supplies last.
We've also completed a large weed of our DVD and Non-fiction books. As a result, our book sale shelves are brimming with great finds.
Supporting the Friends, who are essential to our library, ensures we continue providing superior library services. Through the generosity of their time and donations, we're able to offer so much more than our current budget could provide. Some of their current projects include our popular educational venue passes, new puppets, movies, the Summer Reading Program, and countless past projects you've come to expect when you visit the library. Young learners are welcome and encouraged to play on the AWE computer in the Early Literacy Area.
So while you're out picking up pumpkins and Christmas presents, don't forget to stop by the library.
