December’s display has been lent to the library in loving memory of Louisa Kundert Klassy, who was instrumental in establishing the first public library in New Glarus in 1934. Three dollhouses will be on display this month. A “Swiss” dollhouse, made from a kit popularized in the 1970’s that was well loved and played with, and has been refurbished by Louisa’s granddaughter Judy (Klassy) Sokolow.
