It's been a few weeks since our Halloween party, but we still hear spooky noises in the basement...

A Girl Scout Birthday Party

On Nov. 8, the Girl Scouts held a birthday party at the library for their founder, Juliette Gordon Low.

Even 154 years after her birth, Ms. Low's scouts strive to develop "courage, confidence and character."

Juliette's spirit filled the library with her ideal of  "a circle of friendships united by ideas."

It's Kringle Time!

Have you ordered your Kringles yet?  These fruity Scandinavian pastries, available in a variety of flavors, have become a seasonal tradition in the library district.

Our Kringles are baked to order in an authentic Wisconsin bakery--yah, sure, you betcha--and transported home to Aledo by the Friends of the Mercer-Carnegie Library. Kringles are a delicious holiday treat, convenient to have on hand when friends and family drop in.

Last day to order Kringles: Wed., Nov. 26

Tuesday Dec. 9- -- (9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.)
Wed., Dec. 10   -- (10:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m).
