New Website!

We’re thrilled to announce that Chippewa River District Library has launched a redesigned website this week. The new website provides a better user experience for the modern library user and will work seamlessly with a computer, tablet or phone.

Reopening

Beginning Monday, March 15, 2021 ALL locations of the Chippewa River District Library will reopen to the public for limited browsing, public computer use, and other in-person services.

We are now moving into Phase 2 of our reopening. Our goal is to provide additional in-person options to better serve our customers and community, but in a way that moves people in and out as quickly, efficiently, and safely as possible.

Computer Access at VML

Starting Monday, November 2, Chippewa River District Library will welcome the public back inside our Veterans Memorial branch by appointment for computer use. This will be the first time the public is allowed inside the library since we closed our branches on March 16 due to COVID-19 and associated executive orders.

Amy & Roger's Epic Detour (Matson)

“Tomorrow will be better.” “But what if it’s not?” I asked. “Then you say it again tomorrow. Because it might be. You never know, right? At some point, tomorrow will be better.”

2019 Christy Awards Announced

The Christy Awards are given each year to Christian fiction novels to honor “novels of excellence, imagination, and creativity.”  The award has been given since 1999, and is named for Catherine Marshall’s novel, Christy. 

Starsight - Skyward #2 (Sanderson)

“You know the worst part about being in charge, Spin?” “No, sir.” “Perspective. When you’re young, you can assume that everyone older than you has life figured out. Once you get command yourself, you realize we’re all just the same kids wearing older bodies.”

Meet Me on Love Lane (Bocci)

I was crying happy tears as I finished this. What a perfect example of a childhood friends-to-lovers/ kinda second chance romance. Hands down, my heart hasn’t felt this full and melted in a while.

Flight (Alexie)

Flight is a story about a half-Native American foster kid, who has named himself after his face ache. “Zits,” has struggled through the foster system since he was eight years old. He feels angry, betrayed, and alone.

Mary Poppins (Travers)

It was quite enjoyable to revisit the Mary Poppins of my youth anew through the P.L. Travers novel, which I never read as a child. I found many of the same lovable characters and stories I remembered from the Disney movie, as well as even more wonderfully funny, ironic, and whimsical adventures.

Be Careful What You Wish For (Archer)

Book 4 of the Clifton Chronicles picks up right where book 3 left off...sadly I read book 3 in 2016. Why did I not continue with the series then, I don’t know, and I wish I had as, although the characters are all familiar to me, I can’t really remember their stories and entirely how we got to where we are now.
