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.

To kick off the holiday shopping season years ago, department stores (especially those in bigger cities) trimmed their windows with mechanical dolls and animals to attract shoppers. It became an annual tradition for many families to travel downtown, and to go from store to store to see the creations. It was inexpensive entertainment for children. New York City is known even today for its fantastic holiday window creations.

This year the library dressed our windows with this tradition in mind.  We hope you enjoy them as December comes to a close.

The Library + Badgerlink can help you find the facts. 

Sometimes a topic generates a lot of buzz, and you wonder where you can go to get more information. The WI Dept of Public Instruction makes available an online resource called, BadgerLink. Available to all Wisconsin residents, it’s a tool that many people aren’t familiar with, and a worthwhile source of hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles!

Visit the Library if you have a need-to-know. We’ll help you use BadgerLink to find out more about health-related topics, the newest business craze, or even the latest clickbait.

{“From a historical perspective, the techniques employed by clickbait authors can be considered derivative of yellow journalism, which presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines that include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism.” – from Wikipedia}
