September 19, 2019, All Day @ Manitowoc Public Library
All September long, when members of our community stop by MPL to sign-up for a new library card or renew an expired one, they’ll have the opportunity to spin the Prize Wheel at our First Floor Service Desk to win a fabulous prize. And here’s the best part—everyone’s a winner! Library Card Sign-Up Month is brought to you by the American Library Association and libraries nationwide. It’s a time when they all join together to remind parents, caregivers and students—pretty much everyone—that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

Balkansky Community Room
Volunteers are needed! Volunteers are appreciated! Volunteers help fill the gaps that staff cannot! Manitowoc Public Library will be hosting a Volunteer Resource Fair on Thursday, September 19, from 11 AM to 2 PM. There are many organizations in the area that need volunteers and many people who might like to volunteer, but don’t know where to start. We are providing a roomy, welcoming space for people wanting to volunteer and organizations in need of volunteers to find each other. Anyone wanting to offer their time and talents by volunteering is very welcome and encouraged to stop in and chat with the staffs of different agencies to find out more about the possibilities that are open to them. Admission is FREE!!!

Balkansky Community Room
Through a series of interviews, dialogues, and narrated episodes, Susan B. Anthony—as portrayed by Bev Smith in MPL’s Balkansky Community Room at 6 PM on Thursday, September 19—comes to life in her crusade for human rights, particularly those of women. This dramatic portrayal by the Heritage Players of Green Bay brings this dynamic, tireless woman to life for contemporary audiences. In 1872, Anthony was arrested for voting for a representative in Congress. Her trial attracted nationwide attention. She died fourteen years before Congress passed the Nineteenth Amendment, finally giving women the right to vote in 1920. By the way, Wisconsin was the first state in the union to ratify the amendment on June 13, 1919. In her presentation, Bev will incorporate material she has researched on Anthony’s visits to an 1886 series of Women’s Suffrage Conventions held in Milwaukee, Oshkosh, Eau Claire and Green Bay. Admission is FREE!!!
