Patrons using AskAway are linked to research professionals who can help them find and use authoritative sources in their school or local public library, a regional library, or in the BadgerLink collection of databases. Some of the most common requests from students are for help developing science fair projects, researching historical figures, or gathering information for essays and extended projects in literature and the social sciences. But you can ask anything from a recipe you can't find to where to locate a library close to you!

Come in the library and check out our display case it has chickens in it. What a sight! The display was lent for your ogling pleasure by Mary Ann Nielsen. She has quite a collection.
For those of you who haven't yet heard Pat, our all-a-round do-it gal is retiring from her position here at the Library, October 30th. She has worked at the Coloma Library for 12 years as of Saturday September 6. She will be missed tremendously here at the library as well as by me. I have worked with her for 10 of those 12 years. It has always been an adventure. My other empolyee Deb, will be stepping into Pat's shoes. So that means I have an opening at the library for a part time employee.
