Come join our awesome team, learn how to use the library resources, and work on campus between classes!

UW-Baraboo/Sauk County Library and Baraboo Public Library are collaborating on the publication of a book featuring memoirs in the Palm of the Hand style.
The book will contain personal stories from people who live and work in Sauk County today. A reflection of the people who make up our community, these stories will bind past and present in a mosaic of individual experiences. All members of the community are welcome to write and submit a story in the Palm of the Hand memoir style, a method that focuses on individual memories.
Submitted stories will be gathered together by library staff and then printed and hand-bound by Michael Czarnecki of FootHills Publishing. Michael is the developer of the Palm of the Hand memoir style, and a frequent visitor and speaker at both the Baraboo Public and UW-Baraboo/Sauk County Libraries.
The finished version of Sauk County’s Palm of the Hand Memoirs will be available in late November 2015. They will have a small cost ($10) associated with them to cover the expense of printing and binding.
For more information about submitting a memoir to be included in the book, check out the Palm of the Hand site, here: https://spiritblogs.uwc.edu/memoirs/book/
Join us at the Baraboo Public Library for a special Palm of the Hand led by Michael Czarnecki himself! He’ll be leading a memoir-writing workshop at 12:30pm on Tuesday, April 14 at the Baraboo Public Library.
That evening, Michael will be presenting Poems Across America, a travelogue of his quest to read poetry in each of the lower 48 states, accompanied by stunning photography of all the places he visited.
The library’s own Marc Boucher hosted Calc Fest “Jeopardy”.
High School students from 4 different area schools competed using their knowledge of differentiation, integrals and limits.
A fun and scholarly time had by all.
