Beautiful Baby Contest

See that kid up there? Well, he's all grown up now. But if you think he's a beautiful baby, come by and vote for him!

Here at the library we're having our first-ever BEAUTIFUL BABY CONTEST. It's a fundraiser during which we post BABY PICTURES of community leaders and city employees and allow you to tell us who's the best-looking by putting money in slots corresponding to the photos...the "baby" that attracts the most money wins! The grown-up version of teh person will receive a certificate declaring him or her MOST BEAUTIFUL BABY IN CHIPPEWA FALLS!

The proceeds will be used to pay for new furniture for the library. In case you're wondering, contestants include Rusty Volk of Northern Wisconsin State Fair, Mayor Greg Hoffman, Bill Volker of Volker Funeral Home and more! We don't identify the pictures, but maybe you can figure it out...

Come see what they looked like and give to a good cause!

Happy Retirement!

Today is the last day of work for Ms. Lynn Kuechenmeister who, for over 25 years, has been a fixture here at the Chippewa Falls Public Library. Lynn was head of the Circulation Department, the department that handles check-ins, check-outs, overdues, fines, shelving, lost items, etc. In many ways, the Circulation Department is where "the rubber meets the road," and Lynn has made sure the tire pressure stayed where it needed to be.

Lynn has been a smiling face for the public, a friendly ear to the staff and a helpful voice for administration. She deserves a happy retirement.

Her daily contribution will be missed and I wish her luck on behalf of the staff, board and Friends of the Chippewa Falls Public Library.
