Library staff donned birthday hats, many of them hand-made creations, on April 3 to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the dedication of the first library building in Wausau on April 3, 1907. Dancing, food, and frivolity was had by all. See more photographs here. And don't forget to come and help us celebrate the 100th Birthday of the Library on April 15 with live music, birthday stories and storybook characters, trolley rides, and of course birthday cake, punch and fun, fun, fun for the whole family. Activities start at 1:30 on April 15. Come join us!
