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"
