Fostering the Love of Reading - "Slammed" by Colleen Hoover /Studio 455 Photography, Central Wisconsin Photographer

For February's book of the month we choose to donate "Slammed" by Colleen Hoover. This young adult fiction selection introduces the reader to the concept of Slam Poetry - a unique and beautiful art. The sibling relationships in Slammed are laugh out loud funny and it tells a love story so real it will resonate with readers young and old. Colleen Hoover self-published this book as a Christmas gift for her mother and it quickly rose in popularity to become a New York Times Best Seller. It is easy to see why it became so popular - check it out yourself at Patterson Memorial Library!

Fostering the Love of Reading - "Extra Yarn" by Mac Barnett / Studio 455 Photography, Central Wisconsin Photographer

When we decided to look at commercial properties in Wild Rose, the only other place in town that we visited before making an offer on our building was the library. It had a cute little children's section and offered a weekly story hour. We were well aware that in small towns, the library is the hub of a community; and we were thrilled to learn that it was open 6 days a week. In a town of less than 800 people, that is an amazing offering.

While we were preparing to open our studio, Jeremy and I fell into frequent discussions where we brainstormed a good way to give back to the community. We wanted our studio to support something local. Inspiration struck when we thought back to the Manawa library. They had an amazing selection of children's books, many of which were purchased with funds from a foundation set up by Sturm Foods. Excited. I spoke with library director earlier this fall, and he was enthusiastic about our idea.  Studio 455 Photography will be purchasing a book a month to donate to the Patterson Memorial Library.

We chose to focus on the Children's and Young Adult Library because we strongly believe that books can take kids anywhere. The very first book we chose to donate is, Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett, Illustrated by Jon Klassen. This book has amazing pictures and is absolutely the perfect book to curl up with on a cold winter day! Keep an eye out for it in the children's library soon! And Wild Rose? Thank you for welcoming us home!
