Holiday Gift Bricks
The New Berlin Public Library's front courtyard is home to a brick patio with names of library supporters, family, friends, and pets. Thank you for considering adding a brick to share in this memorial space and for your support of the Library.
Books, DVDs & More
The New Berlin Public Library is grateful to those who give new or gently used materials to the library to enrich our collections. The Library currently accepts books, DVDs, Blu-Rays, music CDs, records and books on CD. We are not accepting reference materials, including encyclopedias, pamphlets, VHS tapes, software, textbooks or magazines. We ask that donations be odor and mold-free.
Regular donations may be left in the Library’s donation drop box in the front lobby. For larger donations, please call ahead, 262-785-4980, and we will meet you at our staff entrance for pick-up. Those items not used for the collection will be placed for sale or recycled.
Please ask for a tax receipt at the time of donation.
The Library’s MakerStudio is home to exploring, tinkering and creating! If you have craft supplies you’d like to share, we accept donations regularly. We do ask that the items be new or gently used.
The Library garden, located just to the northwest of the pond, is a thriving spot for native species and annual plantings. In 2022, Librarian Kate Kennedy began a community composting program to educate and encourage local composting. We, along with our garden volunteers, operate one large rolling compost bin. Everyone is welcome to deliver their organic waste and also take the readied compost for their own use. For more information, email or call 262-754-1834
