 Jan Gehr Art Exhibit -2nd Floor

April 1st- April 30th

Local Artist, Jan Gehr grew up surrounded by the woodlands of northern Wisconisn. From an early age, she sensed a deep love and connection with the natural world. Over the years, her love of drawing sometimes laid dormant, but an inner longing to create always remained. When it was time, she began expressing through drawing and painting the beauty she felt and observed. Her pastel and watercolor paintings of tree portraits and landscapes are a reflection of the "fullness of soul" she has always felt when being with nature. 



Soon after New Berlin was incoporated in 1959, residents expressed a desire for library services. By 1963, the City of New Berlin appointed a Library Commitee and the City Council set up a fund to establish a public library. With support from the New Berlin Lions Club, the City of New Berlin and community at large, funding grew and by May 11, 1968, the first ground breaking ceremony took place for the Library and Community Center!

Thanks to Gary Drinan for his contributions to the Library's history with "A Library for All Reasons"
