Mark your calendar now for a new all-day event at Mead Public Library. Sheboygan Connects will offer hands-on learning fun for all ages on Saturday, May 17, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We have lots of great activities planned, from cooking to crafts, music and yoga, plus lots more. Try something new! And it's all free, thanks to the Mead Public Library Foundation. Check out the full schedule and plan to be there!
Bill Povletich will talk about his book, "Some Like It Cold: A Sheboygan Sufin' Safari." Lee and Larry Williams will tell about their surfing experiences, as well as show surfing equipment at a free program on Saturday, May 10, at 1 p.m. in the library's Rocca Meeting Room. "Some Like It Cold: A Sheboygan Surfin’ Safari" is as much a celebration of the rich and colorful world of Great Lakes surfing as it is the story of brotherhood.
Mead Public Library will be closed on Friday, April 18, and Sunday, April 20. When the library is closed, items may be returned to the drive-up return slots located on the west side of the building.
