Parents & Educators Programs

The New Berlin Public Library programs provide quality learning activities that are fun and also encourage the best techniques identified by research to help with the reading process.

Every summer the library hosts its summer reading program. Studies show continued summer reading helps prevent "summer reading loss".

Year round the youth services department has in addition story time programs for a variety of ages. We also provide additional programming for parents, caregivers and involved adults.

Thank you for supporting the New Berlin Public Library by attending our programs! We ask that you respect the age and attendance guidelines we have for certain programs. Registration for programs takes place at the Youth Services Desk in person or by calling 262-785-4980. In the event that we need to close registration, our waiting list policy is to take children/families on a first-come, first-serve basis at the beginning of the program. Sign in with a Youth Services librarian and we will notify you if there is room available. If you register for a program and cannot attend, please let library staff know. For all programs, please arrive before the program begins. We reserve the right to refuse admittance once a program has begun. We appreciate your cooperation.
