Mammal Skulls at the Laona Library

John Lester a retired forestry Technician for the USDA Forest Service stumbled upon his collection of skulls over the past 30 years of forestry work.  John’s job mainly had him looking up at timber and not at the ground.  Every once in a while when looking around he’d find a skeleton of an animal.  Over the years the collection has traveled around, mainly to schools for education purposes.  The skulls on display include: an otter, fisher, coyote, cow, deer, raccoon, mountain lion, elk and beaver.  His display has already been a huge hit with the students of the Laona School.  Everyone is welcome to come in and take the challenge to try to figure out which skull belongs to which animal.  John also has other unique forestry related items that he will be sharing with the library in the months ahead.  The skulls will be on display for the month of March.  If you have a collection, hobby, or interest that you would like to share with others, you are welcome to display them at the library for the public to view.

Monkeys, Monkeys, Monkeys

It’s all about monkeys this month at the Edith Evans Community Library.  February’s display was borrowed from 10 year old Malina Lazzeroni from Laona.  When Malina first heard about the new display case being added to the library, she asked it she could share her monkey collections.  Melina’s love for monkeys started around the age of 5.  She estimates to have around 100 monkeys in her collection.  She has filled the display case with some of her favorites.  Malina is continuing to collect more monkey’s.  The Library would like to thank Malina for sharing her collection.

There has been a lot of positive feedback about the recent displays.  We welcome anyone who would like to share a special interest or their unique items for future displays to contact Ruby Westimayer @ 715-674-2008 for more information.
