Connect Through Reading


We are partnering with the New Glarus School District to encourage our community to Connect Through Reading.  Participation is simple - for each book you read, log the title on a paper chain link and drop it in the collection basket.  Students from the school district and members of the community will be working together to create a giant paper chain.  (Each chain link = one book read.)

The goal is to create a paper chain that stretches from the Middle School/High School library to the Elementary School library, and then all the way through town to the public library!

All New Glarus community members are welcome to participate.  You can stop by the library any time to pick up some paper chain links, or to drop completed links in the collection basket.  Collection will end on May 31, 2019 to allow time for the chain to be assembled.  Questions?  Email Mrs. Hansen at
