Now that the new Youth Services Department has been completed, library staff members are working on additional improvements to our service program.

One new development has been a second showing for the library's popular Monday Movies series for adult audiences. The Monday Movies series now shows popular and critically acclaimed feature films at 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. Mondays, with the exception of holidays. The 1:30 p.m. showing was added for people who prefer not to drive after dark. Subtitles for the hearing impaired will be used at the 1:30 p.m. showings. We hope this will make it easier to attend for anyone with a conflict on Monday evenings. Last year, more than 5,000 people attended library-sponsored films for all ages.

Family Fun Nights, Family Films, the Lego Club and other special family events have resumed for the fall on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. Singer/storyteller Tim Kastle will perform on Tuesday. Popular family films will be shown on Oct. 8 and 22. The Lego Club will be held Oct. 15. A Haunted Library & Halloween Party is scheduled from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 29.

Weekly Teen Programs include a Teen Movie on Thursday; "Game On @ Your Library" on Oct. 9; a Teen Read Poster Photo Booth on Oct. 16; and a "Doctor Who Party" on Oct. 23rd. Teen programs start at 3 p.m.

October will include great programs for adults in addition to the Monday Movies series. The adult concert series continues at 7 p.m. Oct. 10 with a by Canadian singer/songwriters Dala. "From Boop to Bennett: An Evening of Wisconsin Film and Filmmakers" will be presented by Maxine Ducey of the Wisconsin Historical Society at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11. At 7 p.m. Oct. 24, authors Joseph Salmons and Eric Raimy will discuss their new book "Wisconsin Talk."

If you would like one-on-one help with computers, e-books, the Internet or related technologies, our weekly Tech Tuesday training sessions may be just what you need. Sessions can be scheduled from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesdays. You can reserve a time by calling 715-422-5136.

Take a break from your busy schedule at the McMillan Coffeehouse. You will find award-winning coffee from Madison's Ancora Coffee Roasters and wonderful baked goods. The McMillan Coffeehouse is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

We encourage you to make McMillan Library your home away from home. Visit the library, visit our website www.mcmillanlibrary.org, or call us at 715-422-5136 for more information about library programs and services.
