The Sisters Library features 8,300 square feet of space, all housed in an exterior design that includes a partial wraparound porch with the Western appearance for which Sisters is famous. Though the building itself was constructed in 2005, Sisters has a tradition of library service that goes back decades.

In addition to a robust selection of books, music, and DVDs, the library also offers public computers as well as children’s story times and adult programming in the community meeting room. The interior design features vaulted ceilings and a gas fireplace that creates a cozy reading area. Rotating art and quilt exhibitions reflect the talent of the local community. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    Join community librarians for songs, rhymes, stories and fun!

    Experts agree that talking, singing, reading, writing and playing with your young child will prepare them for learning how to read, and will teach them the six skills needed to read. A child who enters kindergarten with a strong vocabulary, a love of books, and a familiarity with playing with words, has a definite advantage. You can help those skills develop with story time!

    Recording will be available after March 11.

    Learn about the wolf’s natural history, biology, and society & their history of eradication up to today’s current management programs.

    Learn about the wolf's natural history, including their taxonomy and adaptations, diet, and elements of their society. The history of eradication and their return to the West in recent decades will be discussed, along with current management programs that address conflicts with wolves, including livestock depredation, effects on big game, and their perceived threats to humans.

    Wolf biologist Dick Thiel was raised in southeastern Wisconsin and became interested in the plight of wolves in his home state at age 13. He graduated with a B.S. in Natural Resources Management and Biology from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in 1975. In 1980 he was hired as the state’s first wolf biologist - creating and managing Wisconsin’s wolf recovery program from 1980 to 1990. Then serving at Sandhill Wildlife Area deer research facility as coordinator of an Outdoor Skills Education Center and retiring in 2011 after 33 years of service. Despite his career shift into wildlife education, he was responsible for Department of Natural Resources (DNR) wolf monitoring activities within Wisconsin’s Central Forest Region from the time wolves first colonized there in 1994-95, and sat on the DNR’s Wolf Technical Committee from its inception in the early 1990’s to retirement.

    In retirement Dick served for a time as Chair-person of Timber Wolf Information Network, a Wisconsin-based wolf education organization he helped found in 1989, and serves on the Board of Directors of the International Wolf Center, based in Minnesota. He remains active in wolf matters, conducting educational workshops for both organizations which are dedicated to presenting accurate, science-based information on wolf ecology, and as a consultant.

    He has written numerous professional and popular articles on wolves, porcupines, turtles and other creatures. He’s authored The Timber Wolf in Wisconsin: the Death and Life of a Majestic Predator, published by the University of Wisconsin Press (1993) and Keepers of the Wolves, followed chronicling his experiences as a neophyte wolf biologist during the 1980s, also published by the Press (2001) and re-released in 2018, with updates on Wisconsin wolf status.
    In addition, he co-edited the International Wolf Center’s 2013 book, Wild Wolves We Have Known: Stories of Wolf Biologist’s Favorite Wolves, supplying two of the 23 stories contained within. Recently he co-edited the childhood autobiographical memoir, As the Twig is Bent, by pioneer wildlife biologist, Wallace Grange, also published by the University of Wisconsin Press (2020).
