Celebrate Libraries was founded in May 2015 for the purpose of establishing a connection of communities, encouraging the exploration of knowledge of who we have been, who we are and who we can become individually and collectively. To help make this goal a reality, Celebrate Libraries produces videos about library programming, architecture, and trends in information sharing. Click the picture below to watch the amazing video they made about the New Berlin Public Library.

Black & White Photography

Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2016 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


What makes for a great B/W image?  Some subjects work in this genre, some don't. We will cover subject selection and where B/W really enhances and creates great images.  We will look at various color vs black/white images and see what works, and what is improved by not shooting in color. We will also look a few B/W conversion programs for your computer. Please register by contacting the Reference Desk at 262-785-4980.

People who arrive late for their time slot or without a ticket, will have to wait until 8:00 or until all ticket holders have had their pictures taken.  We will try to accommodate picture requests from 8-8:15, but cannot guarantee Santa’s availability after 8:15.
