Welcome to the Town Hall Library!

SOLAR ECLIPSE:  August 21

Sorry, our library does not have special glasses for watching the eclipse.  Please be aware that you cannot watch it directly as you could seriously damage your eyes.  Here is a link to a webpage that can tell you how you can observe the eclipse:   Watch a Solar Eclipse Safely

ANNOUNCEMENT: 

Town Hall Library features artwork / craftworks of all sorts on our Art Gallery Wall and in our locked display cases in the McBroom Community Room.  We are planning a Vietnam War Memorial Exhibit for October and several related events in November.  I plan to feature Vietnam War era memorabilia in our cases during that time frame, as well as artwork or photography by a veteran on our Art Gallery Wall.  Please contact Stephanie Flessert, User Services Librarian, if you have items/art/photos that I can use for these displays.

FEATURED ARTISTS                                   

Elizabeth Braun grew up in Merton and was an employee of the Town Hall Library for two years.  "Bizzie" is currently a student at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, studying psychology, painting, and theology.  She first began working with oil paints two years ago and has enjoyed the challenge they present.  This collection of paintings integrates reality with imagination to create a whimsical, dream-like world of endless possibilities.  Her work will be removed from the Art Gallery Wall the week of August 21st.

Ronald Kadolph, a Rubicon artist, has been painting local, rural scenes for a long time.  He often paints landmarks such as churches and other community buildings, as well as scenery.  Some of his paintings are hung in the buildings they represent.  Ron's work will be installed the last week in August on our Art Gallery Wall and remain through September.

Robert Sitzberger is displaying several of his copper tooling artwork pieces in the McBroom Community Room. He has prepared information on the process used in creating copper tooling art.  Please stop in and see his work; they will be showing through September. Robert has always loved art, an interest he shared with his mother.  He developed a passion for metal arts in high school, although he chose not to pursue it as a career, but rather as an avocation.  He entered a science and technology field instead.

William Weber is sharing some of his European model car collection with us, specifically featuring Volkswagen and Skoda cars.  Bill developed his interest in these cars when he met his wife, Monika, a native of Slovakia.  (Monika is a staff member here at the library.)  The collection will be displayed through September.
