Is Youth Football Safe?
Greenfield Library is hosting a listening debate that will tackle the topic of youth football and the safety of its players on Monday, Sept. 16, at 7 p.m.
A panel of well-informed, local guests with expertise in local youth football, the medical field, and sports equipment will discuss the physical, medical, and legal challenges facing youth football. Panelists will also address the rise in popularity of football, how increased attention to medical trends has affected the game locally, and how equipment companies are trying to make the game safer for our youth.
Panelists will answer audience questions at the end of the discussion.
For more information, please call the library at (414) 321-9595 Ext. 104.
New History Book Club
The club kicks things off Tuesday, Sept. 24, with One Minute to Midnight: Kennedy, Khrushchev, and Castro on the Brink of Nuclear War by Michael Dobbs.
This book recounts the day-by-day, and in some cases minute-by-minute, journey through an intense and scary 13 days in October, 1962, when the United States and the Soviet Union played a game of nuclear chicken.
Reserve your copy online at http://countycat.mcfls.org/ or by calling the Greenfield Library at (414) 321-9595 Ext. 104.

Tail Waggin’ Tutor Program
Puzzle, Greenfield Library’s Tail Waggin’ Tutor, is a trained, licensed therapy dog who would love to spend some time listening to your child read.
If you have a reluctant or emerging reader who could use some gentle encouragement, you might find that reading to our patient canine volunteer in a fun, relaxing and calm environment could give your child the confidence boost he or she needs to allow reading skills to grow.
Reading sessions with Puzzle are available on Wednesday afternoons from 3:30–5:30 p.m. from Sept. 11–Dec. 18, and take place in the Library Community Room. Reservations are required.
Please call the Library at (414) 321-9595 Ext. 104 for further information and to make a reservation.
