Conversations with US project

Small talk and short answers are easy.  What about real questions that make a person think and real answers?  Chris Register, living in Houston, TX, stopped in the library on Thursday, August 11th for a Conversation and real answers.  He is riding across the country, to learn and grow and listen.  Click HERE for more information about the questions he asks about our great country and some of the answers from sea to shinning sea.

An excerpt from his web site www.conversationswithus.com..,  I decided to take a break from a professional career and a reliable daily shower in order to finish something I started years ago: the Conversations with US project. Now, fueled by curiosity and chocolate milkshakes, I’m pedaling my 102-lb rig across the country for stretches of six weeks and 1,900 miles at the time as I explore the cultural and geographical richness of the United States.  I’m thrilled to have you along for the ride.

Dogs and kitties visit the library

On Friday, June 17th, we were joined by Kelli Steuhmer of the Dodge County Humane Society and Deputy Jordan Bradley along with his canine partner Dep. Brody.  Kelli shared how to exercise your pet and let us pet the cutest dog, Snickers, and pet the two kitties she brought.  We made treats for the dogs at the DCHS, too.  Fun, fun, fun

Deputy Bradley answered all of our questions and showed us how Deputy Brody can track and find things.  He will be in North Bend this weekend for Old Settler’s Days.  Make sure to say Hello to them!

Here are a few photos from our fun day @ your library.
