Welcome to the Town Hall Library!



We are pleased to announce that we are hosting the Stars & Stripes Honor Flight Traveling Art Show through the end of May.  Stop in and see this display of photos taken of past Honor Flight participants.  It truly is a touching exhibit that shouldn't be missed.

Honor Flights take veterans from WW2, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, as well as those who are terminally ill, to Washington DC to visit their memorial, at no cost to the veterans! It is truly a wonderful experience and amazing thank you to those who have served.

Town Hall Library is looking for a Town of Merton Resident to Serve as a Library Board Trustee

The Town Hall Library Board of Trustees is an 8 member board appointed by the Chairman of the Town of Merton.  Annually an assessment is made to determine if the Waukesha County Board Chairman appoints a ninth representative based on actual County resident use.

As a policy-making body, the Town Hall Library Board of Trustees guides the development of library services to support and reflect the needs of the greater North Lake area community.

Town Hall Library Board meets the third Monday of the month at 3:45pm.  Terms are limited to three consecutive 3 year terms, and can be re-assessed every three year cycle.

If you are interested in serving your community as a Library Board member, please complete an application form available at THL’s Main Circulation Desk.

Submitting a completed form indicates your interest in serving, but in no way guarantees appointment at time of vacancy.

         Click here for application

Please return completed application to THL’s Main Circulation Desk or email it to Library Director Cheryl Schoenhaar at schoenhaar@townhall.lib.wi.us.  A current Library Board Trustee will contact you regarding the status of your application before their June 17, 2019 meeting.
