Heritage Room

Meet local author, Dominic Vitale: "I'm a first time author, married to my amazing wife, Ashley, and new father to my beautiful baby girl, Arabella. With their love and inspiration I came up with this idea for a children's book. I grew up in New Berlin, graduated from New Berlin West High School in 1998, and thought the public library in my home town would be a great place to begin this new chapter of my life! The goal for this book is to show kids a fun way to learn a valuable life lesson about sharing."
