Presque Isle Community Library Hiring
The Town of Presque Isle, Wisconsin, is accepting applications for a full-time Library Director. The current Library Director (Pam) will be retiring around December 2016, after 30 plus years of warm and memorable service to our community.
We are seeking a “people” person with marketing and leadership skills who will help our small and highly-used library grow its culture of enthusiastic service, flexibility, and welcoming attitude, as well as someone who embraces planning and program growth. In addition, candidates should possess intellectual curiosity, a commitment to life-long learning and value access to information for all.
The Director of the Presque Isle Community Library works cooperatively with the Board, library friends, volunteers, and other community groups and members. The Director should exhibit leadership, organization, and management skills to promote growth of our facility usage, within these various community groups.
Responsibilities of the Director include working with the Board on long-range plans, budgeting and policy development; selecting, maintaining, and improving the library collection; implementing new programming for all ages; and overseeing the library’s building and grounds.

Bob and Darlene Berdan's 2014 Brazil World Cup Adventure
Bob & Darlene, and their family, spent three weeks in Brazil in 2014, following the US Men's National soccer team 7000 + miles around Brazil, visiting Rio de Janiero, Natal, Manaus and Recife, and returning to Rio for departure home. With the Olympics set to begin in Rio on August 5th, here is the question Bob will pose: will Rio be as ready for the summer Olympics as it was for the World Cup 2 years ago? Come to the lower level of the PI Community Library on Monday August 1st at 6:30 to see some of their slides, learn a bit about Brazil, and soccer, and sample the national drink of Brazil. The evening will end at about 8:00 pm.
A new Book Club is forming Tuesday, August 30, at 6:30 PM at the Presque Isle Library. The book to be discussed is "Go Set a Watchman" by Harper Lee
Hopes are that this group will gather every 6 to 8 weeks and that it will include men and women. Everyone attending must have read or listened to the book, and exchanges of perspectives and reviews can be led by different members each meeting.
Future locations can vary if participants want to go to Winchester, Boulder Junction or Mani Waters. If you haven't talked books since college, if you've always wondered what Book Clubs are about, or if you just love to read, please show up on June 21 or call Susie at 715 904 9063 for info
