Oscar Days at the Library

Mid-terms got you down? The Oscar Rennebohm Library would like to welcome Edgewood College students to Oscar Days - seven days of stress-busting activities, games, and refreshments, from Saturday, October 9th through Friday, October 15th!

On Monday, kick off the week with some hot apple cider at the library, and come and see us at the Pride Picnic Pride picnic on Phil's Terrace/Washburn. Every day we will add additional activities or games in the library- including jigsaw puzzles, fortune tellers, and paper airplanes. Get a punch card from the front desk, collect punches for every activity you complete, and at the end of the week turn it in to win a prize! There will also be snacks, stickers, and other goodies provided Monday through Friday.

Our library is named after Governor Oscar Rennebohm (May 25, 1889 – October 15, 1968), who was governor of Wisconsin from 1947-1951. Before becoming governor, he worked as a pharmacist, and eventually ran a chain of his own drug stores in Madison. The building which houses the University of Wisconsin-Madison school of pharmacy is now named after him. As governor he was active in education reform, and in 1949 he founded the Rennebohm Foundation, which supports education in the Madison area.
