Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booths at the Jefferson and Waukesha County Fairs last month. We got to talk to over 4500 people about libraries! A huge thank you to the staff members who volunteered their time to share their library passion with our communities. See you next year!

Eight member libraries are now offering a new program for seniors called Sip & Swipe, where seniors attend one-on-one classes to learn how to use tablets or iPads, taught by a volunteer coach. The Johnson Creek Public Library has had the most graduates to date: 26 seniors who have completed the classes. Karl Junginger Memorial Library in Waterloo is the newest library to open this program to their community.
