Welcome to our Newsletter:

We hope you enjoy keeping up-to-date with our eNewsletter.  You will also get notified of any last minute program changes or early closings due to weather.

Thank you: Jim and Grace Otto
for starting the cookie tradition
and Erin Mand
for continuing the tradition

Jim and Grace Otto have generously donated cookies to the library, to serve everyone that walked through the door, for over 6 years.  A service started that truly makes the library a very unique place and helping you feel cozy as you pick out a good book to take home.  After the announcement that the service was going to be discontinued after the closing of Rippin' Good Cookies, Erin Mand stepped up to the plate to keep a good thing going.

If you see them, be sure to thank them!  
New Computers coming soon
Computers are a growing trend and need for all people of all ages - whether you're learning how to use a computer, download books, check emails, do homework, or apply for jobs, computers are very important for everyday life.  Brandon Public Library just received a grant through the Fond du Lac Area Foundation in a partnership through Marian University to purchase two laptops for public use.  On top of that, two additional laptops were donated to the library by Pillar and Vine -- making it a total of ten computers for the public and an additional staff computer that is now mobile.

Thank you to these businesses for making this happen!
