Our Library has a wide-ranging selection of fiction and non-fiction books for all ages.

   SIP & SWIPE CAFE'

We are offering the Sip & Swipe program here at the library for senior citizens. The program is designed for seniors with little or no experience with computers.  You work at your own pace on a senior-friendly on-line program on tablets available at the library.  The program takes up to 4 1-hour long sessions to complete.  Coaches will be here to help you as needed. This is a good way for you to "try before you buy" and see if using computers or tablets is something you might be interested in.

We will set up the program to meet the needs of those interested.  Ask at the circulation desk about registration.  You will be contacted to set up a group.

Are you interested in helping other 50plus folks learn to use a tablet?  Please contact Stephanie Flessert, User Services Librarian, by calling the library at 262-966-2933.


 

Waukesha County Libraries offers a wide range of highly interactive, instructor led courses that you can enjoy entirely online through Gale Courses, also known as ed2go.

FEATURED ARTIST:  

BARBARA HOEL

We are featuring an artist who works in a different medium - Legos!  Come and see her creations:  Photos of her Lego design which was on display at Brickworld 2016 in Chicago last month (and was sold to a collector there) on the Art Wall and Lego sculptures in the McBroom Community Room display cases.  Barbara's  work is fantastically imaginative and just plain fun! 

She is interested in creating art and jewelry from recycled materials, and is the owner/designer of a jewelry company called Zinc Dakota.  Her jewelry features pieces created from aluminum beverage cans.  She is also exploring incorporating felted materials into her work. 

These Lego art pieces will be on display July and August.
