Our Summer Program Finale is Here!

On Monday, August 14, the Sauk City Public Library and the Ruth Culver Community Library will host the “We CAN Festival” from 6:00 to 7:00PM at the Sauk Prairie Community Center, 730 Monroe St., Sauk City. Families are invited for games, crafts, snacks, building, and cooking demonstrations! Donations of canned food is appreciated.

All summer long both libraries have been collecting canned food donations for the Sauk Prairie Food Pantry. This effort was inspired by the summer’s reading theme, “Build a Better World.” Piggly Wiggly of Sauk City matched the donations made at the Sauk City Library. Thank you to all who made donations! Now let’s celebrate!
