During December the library is hosting an exhibit of digital art by Lydia Parker. Miss Parker is currently attending Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. Her work includes whimsical, cartoon-inspired digital illustrations, book cover and poster illustrations among other objects. Join us in the main-floor Miron Fireside Room to meet with her and share how she creates her art on Thursday, December 19, at 5:30pm.
Lobby Glass Case
In the lobby this month we’re showcasing a collection of Santa Claus figures in a variety of materials, sizes, and designs. This is a collection of a Friend of the Library.
Circulation Area Display Case
Feel like you’re traveling through time when you take in this collection of Little Golden Books which have been loved by children for over 75 years. When they were first published in 1942, high-quality books for children hadn’t been available at a price most people could afford. Little Golden Books changed that! Priced at just 25¢ and sold where people shopped every day, they caused an instant sensation and were soon purchased by the hundreds of thousands. These books are part of the personal collection of Friend of the Library Mrs. Martha Nokes, retired librarian.
Local History Alcove Display Case
Find this new display case in the new Local History Alcove on your left, as you enter the library's main floor. The display features Menasha's lighthouse, on the Lake Winnebago shore and the first lighthouse keeper. The case was loaned by Menasha Alderman Steven Krueger, and Mr. Krueger has provided this wonderful display.
Menasha History Display Case
Find this case in the corner at the start of the Fiction Collection. The case currently features a biography of library benefactor and community philanthropist Elisha D. Smith and his wife Julia Mowry. This exhibit is provided by the Menasha Historical Society.
