Ongoing Programs

Preschool Storytime

Mondays at 10:30AM
September 27th – December 6th
Join us for stories and songs! Every Monday we’ll be sharing some fun books, singing songs, and doing fingerplays. There will also be a fun craft to take home. All participants over the age of 2 and the librarian running storytime must be masked, out of respect of those that are not yet vaccinated. Not able to be here in person? We will be uploading the storytime to our Facebook page each Tuesday at 10:00AM so you can still join in the fun! Space is limited due to social distancing, and registration is required. You can register for each week you wish you attend by calling our Reference Desk at 414-357-0106 beginning the week before the storytime session.

Art Cart

Stop in the library and check-out an Art Cart bag (while supplies last). Inside will be a variety of art supplies and at least one project idea. Bring the bag home and make something awesome!

Lego Club

Available every first and third Wednesday of the month
It’s Lego Club, with a twist. Every first and third Tuesday of the month, we’ll have a new Lego challenge for you to try to building. Come to the library and check-out a Lego kit – inside will be a challenge and the Legos you’ll need to build it. Take a picture once you’ve completed the challenge, and earn a stamp on your Lego Club punch card. For every two stamps you get, you’ll receive a small prize!

Relax & Refresh Kits
