August Supply Drive

SKMBT_C284e14080714100_0001There are a lot of great sales on school supplies in August, and we’d love it if you supported our supply drive! If you click on the above picture, you will see a larger version of our “wish list”. Craft supplies for storytimes are always appreciated, especially glue sticks and new markers. During cold season Kleenex tissue is a big expense, and some donated boxes would really make our patron’s noses happy! Hand sanitizer and antibacterial wipes also help us keep germs at bay! Lastly, pens and pencils are something that are constantly disappearing off our desks, so we can always use more!

Your generosity during our August Supply Drive is appreciated!


TRIO: A New Catalog Will Be Available Fall 2014

TRIO logo_portrait_low resTRIO: A New Catalog Will Be Available Fall 2014

The West Bend Community Memorial Library will join together with 26 other libraries in Dodge, Jefferson and Washington Counties to become Trio this fall. Trio will be the new catalog for access to your library items. A library user will experience the same excellent service and accessibility to items either from the library or from the convenience of your home from the library’s website. Access to Overdrive for e-content will be one click away.

Mid-Wisconsin Federated Library System is making this possible with the SirsiDynix BLUEcloud platform that will move the library experience to the next level of technology. Stay tuned for more information as the project gets closer to completion.
