This month the spotlight is on the future. The Frank L. Weyenberg Library is exploring ways to better serve the community.

To that end, you may have noticed signs promoting a variety of databases including Consumer Reports, Ancestry.com, Value Line, and A to Z Databases. These sites give you access to information you cannot Google. No Fake News here. This information is verified and authenticated just like any other reference material in the library. Questions? Let us show you how to use these resources.

We’ve also increased our Music CD collection. Check out classical music, golden oldies, new releases, holiday tunes, and more. And if you’re transferring your collection from CD to another format, we will happily accept donations of music CDs. This is a great way to explore musical genres or to prove to your children or grandchildren that you know good music.

Weyenberg Library is now the place to see films new and old. Join us December 16 at 2 p.m. for a Frozen Sing-Along. In January we’re launching Weyenberg Movie Matinees showing Dunkirk and The Big Sick, the first and third Fridays of the month, respectively. These films are free and open to the public.

On our wish list are two more collection spaces on the second floor. We hope to create research spaces for a local history collection, and for a Civil War history room, the foundation of which is our Jamron Civil War Collection. These spaces will contain printed material, computers to access to online material, and study tables for your convenience.

There’s more on our wish list. We’d like to add a service point in the children’s department, and make our reference desk more visible and accessible. Still kicking around ideas to make this a reality.

Visit your Library. Tell us what you’d like to see. We’re open to suggestions.

P.S. Please share this newsletter with others in the community.

Weyenberg Movie Matinee
Friday, January 5
6:30 PM

Whether it's an old favorite or that film you missed in theaters, you'll find something to love at the library's Movie Matinees. First in the series: Dunkirk.

Dunkirk depicts the dramatic and true story of the Dunkirk evacuations from a war torn beach and harbour in Belgium, following the seemingly doomed plight of allied soldiers in World War II. As the enemy forces close in it seems the troops have nowhere to go, but help is at hand and a fierce battle ensues. Starring Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy and Harry Styles. Written and directed by Christopher Nolan. Rated PG-13 for intense war experience and some language.
