Last year fourteen scholarships were awarded across three categories: Christmas Scholarships, Kyle Paszkiet Scholarship, and Dennis Maurer Memorial Scholarships. These scholarships are made available through the generous donations of many people. It is this active and continuing support from Boulder Junction residents and friends which has kept this program going for the past 53 years to benefit those students seeking higher education.
Art in the Library
The public is invited to meet the artist at a reception to be held on Friday, November 24 from 12:30-2:00 pm in the library. The event is free and refreshments will be served.
Growing up in Boulder Junction was an incredible experience and a highlight of Susan’s life. Born in 1952, Susan grew up in a town known for its “scenic vista at the dump.” She was delivered by an 'Angel’, Dr. Kate Newcomb. Her mom was a groundhog and a pilot, and her dad was a butcher and a banker. They owned Klassen's U-Save Grocery Store. Susan was the “Musky Queen” of the 1959 Boulder Junction Musky Jamboree, alongside Jeff Long as King.

Cookies and Candies Needed!
For The Friends of the Boulder Junction Public Library
Annual Cookie Walk
This holiday season, you can help the Boulder Junction Public Library by donating your homemade cookies or candies for the Friends of the Library Annual Cookie Walk. This library fundraiser will be held in conjunction with our town Christmas Walk on Friday, November 24 at 5 p.m. in the Acorn Lodge.
The Friends have freezer space and will accept donations of homemade cookies and candies starting now. Please bring your sweet treats to the library during operating hours; Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday 10am – 1pm, Tuesday and Thursday 10 am – 7pm, or to the Acorn Lodge on the day of the sale between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. Your support is greatly needed and a batch or two of your homemade treats would be appreciated!
Funds raised at the Friends of the Library Cookie Walk have helped the library purchase new public-use computers, best-seller books, DVDs and newspaper and magazine subscriptions for patron use.
Food for Fines
In honor of the holiday spirit, the Boulder Junction Public Library is giving patrons who owe fines the opportunity to reduce or erase them while helping out those in need at the same time. This is a unique chance for patrons to return long overdue items without worrying about the burden of paying the fines or to clear their record if it is blocked because of fines.
For each non-expired, non-perishable canned good brought in during the months of November and December, the library will waive $1 or any part of $1 owed in overdue fines. The Food for Fines program cannot be applied to fees from lost or damaged materials or fines from other libraries.
Simply bring your canned goods to the library during regular business hours starting November 1. Library hours are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 10 am to 1 pm and Tuesday and Thursday 10 am to 7 pm.
The library will be giving the donated items to the Community Food Pantry. The Community Food Pantry, located next to the Community Church of Boulder Junction, is a drop-in pantry open every Thursday each week alternating between mornings and afternoons. They distribute food from the Emergency Food Assistance Program, as well as food purchased from Second Harvest and food purchased or donated from other sources.
Even if a patron does not owe any fines, they can still bring canned goods to the library to be donated to the Community Food Pantry. This winter, the need is expected to be greater than ever before. Canned fruit is especially needed in the winter months, but the library will accept any non-expired, non-perishable canned good.
For questions or concerns, please call the library at 715-385-2050.
