  1. Holiday Storytime & Craft Party

    Join us next Wednesday, December 7, at 6:30 PM for our annual Holiday Storytime and Craft Party.  Favorite holiday characters and song will open the event followed by a variety of craft tables for all ages to create keepsake ornaments. 20 years from now,  it will spark memories of the joyous season past spent with family and friends. Light refreshments will be served.

    Friends of HL Cookie Walk

    The following day, Thursday, December 8, from 9 AM until 7 PM, the library will host the Friend’s Cookie Walk. A variety of holiday treats are busily being prepared for this fundraiser that allows the Friends to provide the library additional funding for programming like the Milwaukee County Zoo and Betty Brinn Museum Passes which have become a popular library offering.  

    Our Changeover Begins

    Also on Thursday, December 8, our library system staff will start the process of switching the library to our new software. It’s an exciting time for us, but it will mean for one week, until Thursday, December 15, we’ll have very limited circulations services.  You’ll be able to check out materials that are here as long as you have your library card in hand. We’ll keep a paper log of hold requests, and when we are live again will check in all the materials returned to us. There won’t be any online catalog as well. We apologize for the inconvenience, and the library asks for your patience as we make this transition learning our new software.


    The annual Food for Fines program begins this Friday, November 25, heralding the holiday season that for many of us include decorating, parties, and family feasts. The Library asks you to consider contributing to local family feasting by donating unexpired canned goods to the library. We’ll make sure every donation gets distributed to our local food pantries that are always in need at this time of year. If you happen to have a fine at the library, we’ll be happy to forgive $1 of fine per canned good. If you already donate to your local pantry, consider playing Secret Santa and drop them off at the library. Your donation can do double duty since we’ll anonymously apply it to help those whose fines keep them from using the library. Donations will be accepted through Friday, December 30. The Library and the community thank you for giving.

    Candy Wreath Class

    Library tradition returns on Monday, December 5 at 6:00 PM as Darlene Pegelow leads our annual Candy Wreath Class. This is a perfect project for parents and children to work on together creating your family holiday tradition. Children 12 and under will need adult assistance. All supplies are provided; all you need to do is reserve your spot 920-485-3535.
