Hello, 

We're just days away from Sunday hours at the Library. Sunday, September 13, the Library re-opens Sunday afternoons, noon to 4pm. We look forward to seeing you seven days a week! 

Here's a book you will want to read: Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. This memoir is Ozaukee County's 2020 Big Read, in collaboration with W. J. Niederkorn Public Library in Port Washington, Cedarburg Public Library, and U.S.S. Liberty Memorial Library in Grafton. Participate in online book discussion and related programming throughout October. Copies of the book will be available at the libraries and throughout the communities. 

Jahren describes her childhood in rural Minnesota with a father who encouraged hours of play in his classroom's labs; about how she found a sanctuary in science, and the disappointments, triumphs and discoveries of scientific work. Yet at the core, this is the story of a relationship Jahren forged with Bill, her lab partner and best friend. Their sometimes rogue adventures in science take them over the Atlantic to the ever-light skies of the North Pole and to tropical Hawaii, where she and her lab currently make their home.

Visit the library to pick up take-home Craft and STEAM Kits, designed especially for children and teens. New children's kits are available every week. 

Masks are required for anyone over the age of five in the library.If you prefer not to come into the library, contactless curbside pickup will continue. Call 262-242-2593, option 2, to schedule your pickup. 

There is so much to discover at Frank L. Weyenberg Library. Please visit us online at www.flwlib.org.
