Meeting Room 115
Wednesday, Jan 15, 3:00pm to 7:30pm

April 1, 2020 is Census Day and only 3 months from now! We need to hire a lot of Madison residents to ensure a complete count of everyone who lives here - especially people who will not initially participate by phone, mail, or website. Recruiters from the U.S. Census will be spreading awareness and helping people apply on the spot with Applicant Days. Following up with every missed individual requires the work of many Census Takers. It's a great part-time job that will pay $22/hour in Dane County. (ages 18 and up)

Book discussion of Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance by Bill McKibben

Book discussion of Radio Free Vermont: A Fable of Resistance by Bill McKibben

Community Room
Wednesday, Jan 15, 6:00pm to 7:30pm

As the host of Radio Free Vermont--"underground, underpowered, and underfoot"--seventy-two-year-old Vern Barclay is currently broadcasting from an "undisclosed and double-secret location." With the help of a young computer prodigy named Perry Alterson, Vern uses his radio show to advocate for a simple yet radical idea: an independent Vermont, one where the state secedes from the United States and operates under a free local economy. But for now, he and his radio show must remain untraceable, because in addition to being a lifelong Vermonter and concerned citizen, Vern Barclay is also a fugitive from the law.

Book Discussion of Magpie Murders

Meeting Room 302

by Anthony Horowitz
In this modern take on the classic English countryside mystery, a housekeeper is found dead at the bottom of the stairs in the grand country house where she worked. Enter a fussy detective, his sidekick, and a vicar. Except: this didn’t happen at all! It is the novel-within-this-novel- which is a Russian nesting doll of a story from Horowitz, creator of television’s Foyle’s War and Midsomer Murders.
