Bayfield Carnegie Library Newsletter
Welcome to our first newsletter! A newsletter for the Bayfield Carnegie Library has been in the works for over a year. It will feature a director’s column; new library materials available; upcoming events and activities at the library; and book reviews from our community. As our quarterly newsletter evolves we will add new content and spotlight areas. We’re all very excited for the possibilities.
I wanted to highlight some of the many library happenings in the past two years—and what a ride it’s been! The library has seen great growth in many areas. We completed a 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, (free copies available at the library) and a major cosmetic renovation on the main floor in 2016. The latter features custom-made, gorgeous book cases, new carpeting, blinds, and a special Nautical collection area in the front area of the library. If you haven’t seen the new look yet, please stop in and check it out.
We started our area’s first-ever Comic/Sci-Fi Con here at the library in 2015. It was met with such enthusiasm and great press that we did another one—this time at Bayfield School—in 2016, which featured new, expanded activities and a special visit from the Star Wars 501st Wisconsin Legion group. We are planning to hold another Con in 2017, by partnering with Red Cliff and Legendary Waters, and the idea is to make it all-encompassing: fantasy, comics, science fiction, indigenous culture, gaming, cosplay, art exhibits, etc.
