Wauconda Area Library in SpringSpring on over to the library in March!

There are so many reasons to come to the library in March!  Not only do we have the latest and greatest in books, movies and CDs, come celebrate St. Patrick's Day, Women's History Month, book and movie releases and so much more!

St. Patrick's Day
Nippersink Rogues St. Paddy's Day Concert
Sunday, March 18 at 2 p.m.

Celebrate your inner Irish with the noted talents of the Nippersink Rogues.  We guarantee your Irish eyes will be smiling with this diverse blend of vocal and instrumental Irish music performed by Mike Knauf and Tom Steffens.

Michele LaRueWomen's History Month
Someone Must Wash the Dishes

Sunday, March 25 at 2 p.m.

Many women fought against getting the vote in the early 1900's, but none with more charm and less logic than fictional speaker Marie Jenney Howe. Our well-intentioned character contradicts as many points as she makes, sincerely believing that her efforts as a "womanly woman" will keep the home intact, and save the Nation from anarchy.
