We learned a great deal about turtles!

Stephanie Hanna, WisCorp Education Manager, made a visit to the library and brought some friends! Participants in the Cochrane-Fountain City 4-H program were thrilled to find out about turtles made for water, and turtles made for land.

Reality Check Financial Education Experience 2017

 “In 2017,  University of Wisconsin – Extension’s Reality Check Financial Education Experience welcomed Independence School District along with Alma, Cochrane-Fountain City, Mondovi, Durand, Pepin, Elmwood, Plum City and River Valley. The learning event included nearly 350 students and over 120 adult volunteers from local communities. Students develop an appreciation for what their parents do to provide for them each month as they are expected to pay bills and see if they can maintain their budget as if they are a mid-20 year old with a career. New to this year’s Reality Check was the Library station featuring Alma Public Librarian Rita Magno and Mondovi Public Librarian Arin Wilken. The Library provided an opportunity for students to learn about the free resources available to them in the community and ways to save dollars each month by utilizing the Library.”

Alma Book Club will be discussing Louisa May Alcott’s title Little Women at our upcoming meeting! Won’t you join us?

Little Women was originally published in two volumes. The first, Little Women: Meg, Jo, Beth, and Amy. The Story Of Their Lives. A Girl’s Book was written in 1868 and had an immediate fan following. The second title, Good Wives was written over just a few months in 1869. Louisa May Alcott found fame and fortune with this creative work.
