Free Swing Dance Lessons
Two to Tango, UWEC
Tuesday, March 28, 2017, 7:00 pm at the Village Hall
Do you make up in enthusiasm what you lack in dance skill? Instructors from Two to Tango, UW-Eau Claire's ballroom and Latin dance club, will teach us a few moves ahead of our 4th annual Swing Dance! All ages welcome. We will try swing and "beginner" steps, so wear comfy shoes and be ready to dance!
Author B.J. Hollars
Tuesday, April 11, 2017, 7:00 pm at FCPL
Award-winning author and UW-Eau Claire English professor B.J. Hollars will return to discuss his new book, Flock Together: A Love Affair with Extinct Birds. After stumbling upon a book of photographs depicting extinct animals, Hollars became fascinated by the creatures that are no longer with us; specifically, extinct North American birds. How, he wondered, could we preserve so beautifully on film what we've failed to preserve in life? And so began his yearlong journey to find out, one that leads him from bogs to art museums, from archives to Christmas Counts.

Made possible by a generous donation from the Friends of the FCPL! This tote can fold into a tiny bundle when you head to the market and when you're ready to use, just unroll it and bam- tons of space! You don't even have to worry about the bag getting dirty because it is machine washable. Our project will take no more than an hour to complete; all materials are FREE and will be provided; and a step-by-step demonstration is included. If you have a t-shirt you love with fun or striking graphics, feel free to bring it along! Please RSVP to (715) 877-3334 so we get the right amount of supplies.
Village Hall Construction Underway!
The Fall Creek Village Hall improvement project has begun! This project includes updated siding and roofing; an ADA-compliant front entrance; new signs; and new windows. As a result, in-person visitors to Fall Creek Public Library may experience some construction-related inconvenience.
For a period of time, the only access to the building (including the library) will be through the back door of the Village Hall. Signs are posted. In addition, the library dropbox will be temporarily unavailable. As an alternative, we ask that patrons use the secure dropbox located outside of the Fall Creek Valley Care Center. The total project is expected to last about one month. The library and Clerk's Office are open during construction.
Due to construction vehicles, the side parking lot will be more crowded than usual. Also, our Facilities Department will salt/sand the back lot more than usual to accommodate the public. We apologize for any inconvenience, and ask that our patrons be patient while the Hall undergoes its "facelift!"

Here in the Libraries, we are always trying to improve our game. To help us serve our students and faculty better, we conduct periodic surveys to understand how you view our services, spaces, and materials, and how satisfied you are with your overall library experience.
From now until December 2, we will be conducting a brief user survey, which you can find linked prominently on our library homepage. Please take a moment and tell us how we’re doing.
The survey takes only 4-5 minutes to complete. All responses are completely anonymous.
The more feedback we get, the better equipped we will be to improve our existing services and develop new ones to meet emerging needs.
So please take a moment to complete the survey. We value your feedback. And we look forward to reporting what we learn from the survey results in the coming weeks. Thank you!
