It's A Friend-raiser Awareness Drive!

We are delighted to have a large number of Friends of the Muehl Public Library (FMPL) who help out at our annual fundraiser, the Wine and Beer Tasting Event. It's been a huge success and you are all greatly appreciated. Our 8th annual tasting will be November 6th at Doxbee's. It's a new venue and we're open to creative ideas.

Previous fundraisers have made possible the purchase of :

  • the SmartBoard in the meeting space
  • the book drop box in front of the library
  • computers for patron use
  • a laminator
  • the neon signage

It would be wonderful if you could join us at our monthly one hour meetings held the third Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the library meeting room. We don't meet in July or December. It's a fun, "friendly" group whose goal is to support the library's activities for all age groups. New input and ideas are always welcome.

See you at the library!

Finally, a dedicated A.R. look up station at the library!

AR workstation We have been dreaming about this for at least two years so it feels great to finally have accomplished this! Patrons can now look up titles in this Accelerated Reader database to see the level and the point value for each title. We have been fighting with paper binders that were never completely up to date. Using this database means that the patron is guaranteed CURRENT information!! Yippee! Our patrons love the ease of browsing for Accelerated Reader titles in our library. The opportunity to use this database offers patrons PREMIUM service. Big thanks go out to Maggie Waggoner at the Kaukauna Library who donated this computer to us. Also, big thanks to Julie Leopold at the Outagamie Waupaca Library System (OWLS) for preparing this computer to be dedicated. It takes many, many hands to make light work!
