News from the Tahquamenon Area Library
by Dion Mindykowski, Librarian

Last week the Tahquamenon Area Library was closed four out of six days due to the weather. That was a lot! In fact, in the eight years that I’ve worked here, it was the most we’ve closed in a single week.

Don’t worry, though. The groundhog says spring is just around the corner. I’m sure that even applies to the U.P., right?

As much as the winter weather can cause inconvenience, such as your local library closing, many in the U.P. take pride in the extreme cold and snow to which the peninsula is subjected. Stop by the library this week and celebrate your love of U.P. winters by checking out So Cold a Sky or Sunburns to Snowstorms, both by U.P. meteorologist Karl Bohnak.

Or take your love of winter a step further with What Doesn’t Kill: How Freezing Water, Extreme Altitude and Environmental Conditioning Will Renew Our Lost Evolutionary Strength by Scott Carney and Becoming the Iceman: Pushing Past Perceived Limits by Wim Hof.

In addition, “Game of Thrones” fans are able to stop by to take pictures with various house banners from the series, including the Stark banner with its motto “Winter is Coming.”

We also have a life-size cutout of John Snow so you can convince all of your friends on social media that Newberry is actually north of the wall and you survived attacks by white walkers just to check out books.
