Memory Cafes are places where persons with MCI (Mild Cognitive Impairment), early stage Alzheimer's, or a related dementia can go with their care partners to socialize and have fun with other people going through similar things. Cafes provide a time where you do not need to focus on the diagnosis, while having a great time connecting with each other as a family or creating new friendships!
Join us for a new book club that meets at various pubs and coffee houses in West Bend each month! Enjoy a beverage of your choice and have fun talking about books! Email email@example.com for more information.
Drop in anytime 9am to Noon and drive some Matchbox cars around our version of West Bend — with roads taped on the floor. “Drive” to restaurants, the library, carwash, and more! Drop in anytime during the morning! Geared for ages 2-5. (You may bring your own cars if you wish!)
As part of a study conducted by the directors of the five public libraries in Washington County, we are interested in knowing how you use your library. Let us know how to serve you better!
Book Madness is (almost) back! Drop by the Children's Area on the first floor to nominate the books (or series) for kids and teens that you'd like to see compete in our Book Madness brackets! The more nominations a book gets, the higher it'll be seeded. Stay tuned for our bracket competition, and then the voting madness begins March 2!
Our adult winter reading program will start on Monday, January 6. Read as many books as you want and enter in for prizes! Reading slips must be turned in at the second floor reference desk by 6 PM on Friday, March 6.
Come and play! We'll start at 9:15am with 10-15 minutes of stories and songs, and then have open play afterwards in the storyroom until 11am. If you can't come right at 9:15am, come anytime before 11am!
Family comedy show with Things 3 and 4! Join Things 3 and 4 as they explore the themes in “Horton Hears a Who.” No matter how big or small, everyone can help someone in need and stand up for a good cause. Help the Things find simple everyday ways that they can pitch in and lend a hand.
Think books are awesome? Think we are awesome? Donate today to keep the party going!
