Krissa Coleman is executive director of the Hazel Mackin Community Library in Roberts

How about those Panthers? I just want to congratulate the SCC football team for a tremendous season as they prepare to head back to state in Madison this Thursday to defend their state championship title. Our high school has produced some amazing results in the cross country team, the volleyball team and football team this fall.

I'm sure a few years ago when we joined the Middle Border Conference, people didn't realize what a force SCC school would be in competitions. Our students, faculty, staff and coaches should all be recognized in the leadership and hard work that has been expensed to see these kinds of results. Our communities are so proud to support the school district in these tremendous achievements! Go Panthers!

Job Center: Wednesday, Nov. 15, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you are looking for a new job, this is a great opportunity to get one-on-one counsel in employment opportunities, resumes, interview skills and much more. We recently had a patron use this service and he was amazed at the helped he received and how applicable it was.

The library will be closed Nov. 23, 24, and 25 for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Paws to Read: Thursday, Nov. 30, 3:30-5:30 p.m. We are excited to have Julie Peterson and her therapy dog, Ole back to the library. This program is designed to help children with reading anxiety or difficulty to have a safe connection with a trained therapy dog as they read out loud. This experience can provide confidence and build reading skills. No signup required. Just bring your favorite book to share with Ole!
