I Love Libraries

Library users are passionate readers, and we’ve got resources for all varieties of book lovers. From book club picks to banned and challenged books to award winning titles for readers of all ages, there’s no shortage of great books to pick from for your next exciting read!

Memory Café

The Memory Café offers a safe and welcoming haven for individuals with MCI, early-stage Alzheimer’s, or related dementias, along with their care partners. These special gatherings have no set agenda, allowing everyone to simply enjoy each other’s company and create connections beyond the diagnosis. It’s a place to find comfort, understanding, and new friendships with others going through similar experiences.

Join us on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 1:30 to 3:30 PM (note that the December meeting will be on the 3rd Tuesday). To join, please reach out to Tammy Dickman at 262-335-4497 and be part of a heartwarming community.

Library Outreach Services

At the West Bend Library, our commitment is to ensure that everyone, regardless of their circumstances, has access to our wide range of services and materials. Whether you are homebound, at an assisted living or at an extended care facility, we will help provide you with the materials you want and need. Our Outreach Services Librarian will also work with activity directors and therapists to provide materials that will assist them with their programming for residents.

Please reach out to our librarian to explore the full spectrum of materials available and to schedule a convenient visit to your home or facility. We will work together to arrange a flexible delivery and pickup schedule that aligns with your needs and preferences.

Puzzle Exchange & Table

We have a rotating selection of jigsaw puzzles available for the public to work on. Once one puzzle is completely assembled, we put out a fresh one. It’s a refreshing place to relax, keep your mind sharp, and meet other puzzlers!

You can also be a part of the puzzle exchange. Take a puzzle and leave any puzzles you are no longer using. Get lost in your next puzzle at home!
