Thank you Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin

Last Fall, the Leon Saxeville Library in Pine River received a grant made possible through the Geraldine Hartford Waushara County Fund, in conjunction with the Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin.  The library was able to purchase 2 new computers for the Public Computer stations in addition to 3 new larger monitors with the generosity of the Community Foundation.  Just last week the final technology upgrade was completed with the purchase of a Tablet for staff use and patron training opportunities.  The Mobile piece of the Library System Software was being tested and now that it is available so we could finalize our purchases the Grant allowed us to afford.

Pine River Library of Leon-Saxeville Science Night

 

May 12 - What Am I Eating?

What's in your food?

 

Both programs will be held at the library.

 

Please consider donating your gently used e-readers to us!

Is someone in your house upgrading to a new iPad, Nook or Kindle?  

Please consider donating the old one to the Leon-Saxeville Library.

The donated items will be incorporated into our library’s e-reader lending program.  The iPads will stay in house and be used to create a mobile discovery station connected with various themes/topics of interest to the kids. 

     

If you are interested, here’s what to do:

  • Check to make sure the device is in working order.
  • Gather up related power cords, chargers, cases, etc.
  • For Kindles and Nooks, deregister the e-reader from your Amazon or B&N account.
  • For iPads, go to settings, reset, and reset all settings to restore the device to factory settings.
  • Drop off the device, charger, cover, etc at the library during normal business hours.
  • Is your device broken?  Please don’t throw it in the trash – recycle it!  Amazon and Apple have recycling programs or check the WI Dept of DNR web site for options at www.dnr.state.wi.us.
