Like to walk and talk?  Read hidden gems and get to know some great people?  Join us for the Northside Walking Book Club on third Fridays at 2 p.m. starting on Friday, June 17.  We'll gather at Lakeview Library, and then take a walk in the neighborhood while discussing a book.  You can pick up the book in advance at Lakeview Library so you'll be ready to discuss it at the meeting--just let staff know you're looking for the Northside Walking Book Blub book.  Dogs and strollers are welcome!  Call the library at 608-246-4547 for more details and to let us know if you'd like to join us.

Space Jam: A New Legacy

When LeBron and his young son Dom are trapped in a digital space by a rogue A.I., LeBron must get them home safe by leading Bugs, Lola Bunny and the whole gang of notoriously undisciplined Looney Tunes to victory over the A.I.’s digitized champions on the court: a powered-up roster of professional basketball stars as you’ve never seen them before. It’s Tunes versus Goons in the highest-stakes challenge of his life, that will redefine LeBron’s bond with his son and shine a light on the power of being yourself. The ready-for-action Tunes destroy convention, supercharge their unique talents and surprise even “King” James by playing the game their own way.
