Programs

Summer Reading Program 
Students in preschool through high school have the opportunity to participate in an organized reading program each June and July. Each year features a different theme.   Students read for chances to win prizes of their choice.  The more time they read, the more chances they earn.
Preschool Story Time & Lap Sit Story Time
A story hour for families of preschoolers is held each August. Stories, crafts and activities are held for children ages 3, 4, and 5. Siblings of other ages are welcome to attend with the preschooler and their parent or care giver.  In addition a lap sit story time for children under the age of 3 is held in the spring.  Books, fingerplays, music and dance engage children and their caregivers.
Beginning Computer Classes 
Adults looking to become familiar with basic computer use can attend these free classes. Each class is a stand alone session covering mouse use, using programs, word processing, Internet searching and e-mail.  Classes are held over 4 or 5 weeks. Classes are usually held in the fall with additional classes scheduled as needed.  
Author Programs & Other Speakers
Local and nationally known authors come and speak on various subjects and sign their books. Poets, historians and fiction writers have all come to share their love of writing with members of the community.  Each year the library hosts special speakers and local historians to share their knowledge of Laura Ingalls Wilder and the Village of Pepin during the Laura Ingalls Wilder Days celebration.
Book Club
Beginning January 2016 the library will host a book club which is open to anyone wishing to attend.  The discussions will be held on the second Thursday of each month.  Check flyers for information on titles and time of meetings. 
1000 Books Before Kindergarten
The library encourages families of toddlers and preschoolers to sign up for the 1KBBK program.  Families will receive a folder to help track the books read to the child when they sign up.  Once the child has reach various reading goals they will be given a book bag or book to keep forever.  This is an ongoing program open to children under the age of 5.
