Buffalo County schools recently participated in Child Development Day. Children 3 and 4 years old received hearing and vision screenings. The Library along with other local and regional organizations were invited to talk to young parents about the resources available to them in the community.

The April 2018 Alma School Newsletter has photos of the Alma event (see the photo below). For more photos, visit their site:

We Do the Math

Lending and borrowing. Libraries try to balance the equation. We want to borrow about the same number of titles as we lend throughout the year. That’s just being neighborly.

A sampling of who requested items so far this morning from the Alma Public Library? Holmen, Campbell, West Salem, Bangor, Norwalk, Viroqua, Wilton, Black River Falls, La Crosse, Necedah, and Coon Valley. That’s 14 library users from 11 different libraries that will be receiving something from our Alma collection this week. Sharing; it’s what libraries do, and so much more!
