Let's talk memories, specifically the memories captured in photos, slides, and movies. At my house they are in boxes, photo envelopes, scrapbooks, and miscellaneous desk drawers. Most are unlabeled, and we don't have the right equipment to view the movies. Frank L. Weyenberg Library has a solution to all that -- our Digitization Lab
! Watch the videos
to see what you can do, then reserve
a day when you will have the Lab to yourself to scan photos, negatives, and slides, or convert your film to digital files. Our Digitization Lab is free and available to all FLWL cardholders.
Every year the Library publishes an Annual Report
. Admittedly, last year was different. The typical metrics don't measure what's been happening at the library. We've pivoted to virtual programming, and are happy to report that we're reaching people near and far. We've also been able to introduce digital content, e-books, e-audiobooks, downloadable music, movies, and more, to many people. In fact, digital access has increased by a third. We also continued to answer reference questions, more than 15,000 questions, in fact! Please visit our website and explore what your Frank L. Weyenberg Library
offers in 2021.
Do you know that there is a book shop right here in the Library? We stock it with material weeded from our collection, and with donations from the public. If you have newer, gently used books, DVDs, CDs, and puzzles we happily take donations.
Masks are required for anyone over the age of five in the library. If you prefer not to come into the library, Call 262-242-2593, option 2, for Quick Pickup!
There is so much to discover at Frank L. Weyenberg Library. Please visit us online at www.flwlib.org
