September is Library Card Sign-Up Month!

This September, Marley Dias, author and founder of #1000BlackGirlBooks wants to remind the public that signing up for a library card provides access to technology, multimedia content and educational programming that transforms lives and strengthens communities. “A library card is the ticket you need to travel across the globe. It allows you to experience stories that can connect you to diverse and empowering experiences." - Marley Dias, honorary chair of the American Library Association’s 2021 Library Card Sign-Up Month

2021-2022 Winter Reading Program

Who says summer is the only time for library reading programs? Join us on Beanstack, where we’ll have reading goals, Winter-based activities, and fun Winter-related crafts! The more you participate, the more tickets you’ll get for our grand prize raffles!

Brown Deer Community Calendar

Calling all budding artists! It’s time to prepare for Brown Deer Library’s 2021 Calendar Contest! We believe that the future of libraries lies with our youth, and we want to see what they like about the library.

This is a great opportunity for talented artists, who just love spending time at the library, to show us their skills! Our judges —staff and library patrons —will be able to vote for their favorites. The art with the most votes will be showcased in the upcoming calendar.

The art may be in any 2D format (crayon, colored pencil, marker, or paint). It must be on standard 8.5 x 11in paper or cardstock. The winners will not only have their art featured in the calendar but also receive a PRIZE along with their own calendar! Drawings must be turned in at the Reference desk by Friday October 15th for consideration into the calendar. Once ready, the calendar will be available for purchase and all proceeds will help fund 2022 library programming.

Fall means back to school and cooler weather (hopefully)! Gather the family together and enjoy one of these classic family movies. Discover something new or rediscover an old favorite.
