Spend Sunday Afternoons at the Library

From September though May, Frank L. Weyenberg Library is open Sunday afternoons. You're welcome to visit to read, study, play, relax, fill non-football afternoons, or just escape for a little while. But the Library also offers entertainment and activities just for you. 

If you enjoy old movies, you will enjoy Sunday Matinee Classics, generally the third Sunday of the month. Join us March 17, at 1:30pm for Brigadoon with Gene Kelly, Van Johnson, and Cyd Charrise. The Library will be closed April 21, Easter Sunday. The series returns May 19 when the featured film is The Pink Panther starring Peter Sellers and David Niven. 

We feature documentary films the second Sunday of each month. Next up is Disney Nature's Born in ChinaApril 14, and May 12, we're showing Batkid Begins. Bring the entire family for a Mother's Day movie. According to IMDB.com, "On November 15, 2013, the world came together to grant one 5-year-old leukemia patient his wish to be Batman for a day. Batkid Begins looks at why and how this phenomenon took place, becoming one of the biggest 'good news' stories of all time."

Are the performing arts more your style? Don't miss Celtic Harpist Jeff Pockat, Sunday, March 31, at 2pm. This is the first performance of the 2019 Fine Arts Series sponsored by the Weyenberg Public Library Foundation. The second performance is April 28, when we will be treated to a violin and cello duet featuring Rebecca Schulz and Ingrid Tihtcheva.

One other Sunday event that I must share: April 7 we're having a reception to celebrate our new Strategic Plan. Join us for the community unveiling at 1:30pm in the Tolzman Community Room. There will be refreshments!

BUILDING A GARDEN FOR LOCAL POLLINATORS

Tuesday, March 26, 6pm

One of the biggest benefits of a garden, other than the beautiful flowers, is seeing the wildlife it attracts—especially the flying wildlife! Your garden can help support our local bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, and other pollinators. Find out how with Naomi Cobb, naturalist at the Lynden Sculpture Garden in Milwaukee.
This program is free and open to the public.
