Munising School Public Library News September 1, 2023

Munising School Public Library will be closed Mon., Sept. 4th in observance of Labor Day. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and we thank you for understanding!

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month and the Munising Library is ramping up for it to be the most successful Sign-Up Month ever! Everyone who signs up for a card in the month of September will earn an entry into our Fall Reading Gift Basket Drawing and will also receive an MSPL tote bag filled with info about all the library services and offerings. Mini drawings throughout the month for new cardholders will feature library swag, books, and other items. If you have a library card that you have not used inside the library in over 5 years, it is most likely no longer valid and will need to be renewed or replaced as well. Your new card will qualify you for the drawings too! Stop in during September and find out why a library card is the handiest item in your wallet.

A big “Welcome Back!” to all our students and a reminder to parents that the library parking lot is for public library patrons only and is not a drop off and pickup area for your child, or a parking area for sporting events. Please respect the parking rules and the school safety procedures for dropping off and picking up your student so that everyone stays safe.

NEW BOOK: Raw Dog: The Naked Truth About Hot Dogs by Jamie Loftus. Hot Dogs.

Poor people created them. Rich people found a way to charge fifteen dollars for them. They’re high culture, they’re low culture, they’re sports food, they’re kids’ food, they’re hangover food, and they’re deeply American. You can love them, you can hate them, but you can’t avoid the great American hot dog. {This nonfiction} is part investigation into the culture and culinary significance of hot dogs and part travelogue documenting a cross-country road trip researching them as they’re served today.

From avocado and spice in the West to chili in the East to an entire salad on a slice of meat in Chicago, Loftus, her pets, and her ex eat their way across the country during the strange summer of 2021. A grab a dog, lay out your picnic blanket, and dig into the delicious and inevitable product of centuries of violence, poverty, and ambition, now rolling around at your local 7Eleven.
