Wisconsin's John Muir Exhibit

John Muir ExhibitThe New Berlin Public Library was chosen to host the Wisconsin Historical Society’s travelling exhibit, “Wisconsin’s John Muir,” from July 20th through the 29th. This exhibit explores Muir's youth in Wisconsin, his advocacy for national parks, and his views on environmental issues such as logging, hunting, and climate change. Its eight panels share facsimiles of images and manuscripts from the Society’s library and archives alongside Muir quotes and interpretive texts.

Basic Photo Editing Class

Today most photographers spend as much time editing as shooting. Local photography instructor, Kevin Hanley, will demonstrate how to make editing simpler and more efficient.  

This class is meant to be generic and most functions we cover are common to all editing programs. We are offering this class at 3 different times and different example images will be edited in each class. The information we cover will be the same, but students are welcome to attend more than one class to become more comfortable with editing. Each class will meet in the library’s 2nd floor conference room and will run approximately 90 min, with a question period following the presentation.  

Please register by contacting the library at 262-785-4980 or emailing us at

Wednesday, July 27th 6:00 - 7:30pm
Thursday, July 28th 10:00-11:30am
Saturday, July 30th 10:00-11:30am
