Curbside pickup is continuing with one change. When your items are ready for pickup you will receive a notification from the Monarch System by phone, text or email.

The Mayville Public Library, in light of the Wisconsin Supreme Court’s recent ruling overturning the State’s Safer At Home order, is working on a continuing plan to reopen the library to the public. Our top priority is the safety of the community and staff as we move forward during this pandemic. We will keep the public updated on our progress through traditional and social media outlets: The Dodge County Pionier, the library’s website, www.mayville.lib.us.wi and our Facebook page. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we move forward.

Goodnight with Dolly

IMAGINATION LIBRARY BEDTIME STORIES WITH DOLLY PARTON

“Goodnight With Dolly” will feature Dolly Parton reading a series of Imagination Library books all carefully chosen for their appropriate content at this moment in time. Dolly welcomes the viewers and introduces the title, author and illustrator. Snuggled in bed with her Imagination Library book, Dolly shares stories that are just right for this moment in time. The readings will be a mixture of Dolly and the interior pages of the books.  The books will include “There’s a Hole in the Log on the Bottom of the Lake” by Loren Long, “Llama Llama Red Pajama” by Anna Dewdney, “I Am a Rainbow” by Dolly Parton, “Pass It On” by Sophy Henn, “Stand Tall Molly Lou Mellon” by Patty Lovell, “Violet the Pilot” by Steve Breen, “Max & The Tag-Along Moon” by Floyd Cooper, “Last Stop on Market Street” by Matt de la Peña, “Coat of Many Colors” by Dolly Parton, and of course, “The Little Engine That Could” by Watty Piper

30 Day Lego Play Challenge

Since we can’t get together for Lego Club right now, let’s build at home. We are starting a 30 day Lego play challenge for anyone who wants to participate. Every day we will post what you should build that day. After you are done building, please post a picture of your creation in the comments of the daily challenge Facebook post.  If you don’t have a Facebook account, you can email your picture to lhoard@monarchlibries.org and I will post it here on the website.  You could also tell us a little something about what you built if you’d like to. If you don’t have Legos at home, you can use whatever building blocks you have. Let’s have some fun and use our imaginations! Stay tuned for our post for Day 1! Don’t worry if you can’t get your Lego Build done before the next day’s challenge, just post it when you finish it!
