Celebrate Libraries made its first visit to the Middleton Public Library in Middleton, Wisconsin. Two things stood out: the view of patrons reading and stacks and stacks of books. It was as if I was looking at a garden in full bloom. Secondly the sound of a community gathering. It was a different sound than I remember as a child in the library, (sound equated with noise). The sound had the quality of a fiddler and cloggers creating a soft audible rhythm. The Middleton Fiddler was conceived and we look forward to where the Fiddler takes us in the coming months.
2018 is looking to be a promising year with new Celebrate Libraries® podcasts and videos in production. As the company grows, we are approaching libraries in adjoining states with creative proposals and hope to add new names to the list of trending projects. Current projects include Beloit Public Library, La Crosse County Library and Middleton Public Library.
As always, we appreciate the support of businesses and organizations who believe in the essential value of public libraries.
