From the American Library Association website: "The theme for National Library Week 2020, "Find your place at the library," was chosen some time ago, before any of us could imagine the emergence of a global pandemic that would force most libraries to temporarily close their physical spaces. But you can still find your place at the library because libraries are open for business online, providing the virtual services and digital content their communities need more than ever. You can access ebooks, movies, music, video games, virtual storytimes and activities, and so much more — all from the the comfort of [...]
Over the past thirty days I've spent a lot of time on Instagram. Normally, there wouldn't be anything remarkable about this - I've been posting daily for our super fun game of bingo - but the last month has been no normal month. While Door County is generally thought of as a destination, a place you have to physically visit in order to enjoy, the past few weeks have proven to me that we are a flexible lot, and if we are asked to bring Door County to you, we shall figure out how to deliver. Your favorite shops and [...]
On April 16th, 2018, Rowleys Bay got an unprecedented late spring blizzard. Up to 32" of snow fell in Door County! The next day there was a lot of cleaning up to do.

It doesn't look like much until you see where the doorknob is in comparison to the snow. Yes, those are first floor windows! I couldn't even enjoy it [...]
Biking and hiking are two ways you can enjoy the hundreds of miles of trails and shoreline you'll find in northern Door County. Can you think of a third? We have an exciting idea for you: Segways! And not just any kind of Segways, offroad Segways. Rick's Off-Road Segway Adventures of Door County is by far the coolest way to explore the unique features that make up Door County's landscape. With beefy tires, these Segways will take you over sand and mud, grass and boardwalks, through wooded and beach paths, on concrete and gravel. You don't need to be a [...]
