KASD is not able to offer the Summer Feeding Program again this summer. However, the Library has received donations from the following supporters to offer a free lunch to hungry youth under the age of 18 every Wednesday during the summer, June 12- August 28. Similar to the Summer Feeding Program, the food is for youth only and must be eaten in the library. Families in need are also encouraged to utilize our Little Free Pantry located in the corner of the adult nonfiction collection. Fresh produce from our Flex Farm will also be in the pantry during harvest times. Our amazing donors for this program include: Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Heirloom Kitchen, The Fischer Family, The Driessen Family, Stone Ridge Piggly Wiggly and Unison Credit Union.

Each month, join local historian Gavin Schmitt (and the occasional guest speaker) to learn about a piece of Kaukauna. Maybe a founding father (or mother!), a long-time business, or perhaps an organization that has helped the city grow. The sharing of memories is strongly encouraged, and proposals for future topics are welcome.

July-guest speaker Neil Geiger on Geiger Photography

August-guest speaker Dan Kobussen on Kobussen Bus

September - guest speaker former Police Chief Pat Campbell on the Kaukauna Police Department

October - author Boll Stokes will discuss Wisconsin POW camps and his new novel Margaret's War, the story of an isolated small town in Wisconsin suddenly thrust into the brutal reality of World War II when German POWs are brought in to help with crop harvesting.

November - Thilmany Reunion and History Display - come and share memories of the Thilmany mill, reminisce, and explore books and artifacts related to its history.
