Library Events

October 29, 2022 9:23 AM

Hello!

This week's updates put together by Council Staff are too important to sardine into one blog. I took the liberty to separate and highlight information we shouldn't overlook.  You will be getting a handful of blog entries from me today, highlighting these special events.  

The library has a lot going on!  This is a great opportunity to interact and learn about the Indigenous People and their vast culture. Check the links for more details and the registration form.

  • Native Wisconsin seeds now available: Madison Public Library is excited to announce that, thanks to a very generous donation from the Dane County Land & Water Resources Department and Northside Naturalist Alex Singer, they now have native Wisconsin seeds available in their seed libraries! Native Wisconsin plant seeds are best sown in the fall and left to overwinter, so Madisonians can stop into one of the four participating libraries and pick up FREE seed packets! The library is also hosting hands-on workshops at Pinney, Meadowridge, and Lakeview libraries. Learn more by visiting the seed library website, and registering for one of the workshops.
  • Teejop & Beyond: Celebrating Native Nations of the Great Lakes: Madison Public Library, in partnership with Ho-Chunk Gaming Madison, is welcoming a variety of Native artists, storytellers, and community leaders for a series of programs celebrating Indigenous people in and beyond Teejop (pronounced day-JOPE, meaning Four Lakes, or Madison). Eight Native presenters will lead programs highlighting both traditional and contemporary practices, stories, and community relationships. Upcoming programs include:
    • October 29: Milkweed Soup Cooking Demo and Tasting with Rita Peters (Ho-Chunk) from Olbrich Botanical Gardens
    • November 5, 19: Family History Writing Workshops with Sherman Funmaker (Bear Clan Elder, Ho-Chunk Nation)
    • November 9: Indigenous Birth and Traditional Parenting presentation by Raeanne Madison (Crane Clan, Bois Forte Band Ojibwe Nation)
    • November 12: Art Walk in Monona with Kristie GoForth (Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians)Learn more by visiting the website and reading the press release.

AT all Libraries

At West side Sequoya Library

Also, this is a great cross-generational activity:

  • Memory book-making workshops: Pinney Library's Artist-in-Residence, Angela Johnson, is leading a series of 2-part workshops where seniors and others can create their own memory book. Using photos and stories, attendees will put together a one-of-a-kind memento for themselves or loved ones. Workshops are taking place across 3 different library locations in November, with the next one beginning Nov. 1 at Goodman South Madison Library. Learn more by visiting the website, and reading the artist bio.
