Celebrate the 4th of July / Andersen Library’s hours

Andersen Library will be closed on Sunday, July 5th, 2015, because of the holiday weekend. Of course, online access to databases (including articles), the library holdings listed in Books, media and more (UW Whitewater) (including ebooks) and Ask a Librarian online assistance via chat will be available.

Whitewater’s Family Festival runs Thurs.-Sun., July 2-5. The schedule includes a parade at 10am on Saturday, the 4th (parade route map), preceded by the Whippet City Mile along the same route and starting at about 9:50am. The Festival also includes midway games, food (pickle on a stick!), music, the annual car show (on the 4th), Minneiska ski show (on the 4th, after the parade, on Cravath Lake), fireworks, and more. There’s also the Whitewater Classic Drum Corps International tour event (on the 5th in UWW’s Perkins Stadium).

Many nearby communities will be celebrating as well, e.g., Milton offers “Taste of Milton,” Family Kickball Tournament (on the 3rd), carnival, parade (1pm on the 4th), music, softball, and more. The Hoard Historical Museum in Fort Atkinson will host its annual ice cream social on the 4th from 1-3pm with live music. Mmm…cookies.

Enjoy. Happy Fourth!
