You are your child’s first and most important teacher. Regularly reading aloud to your child beginning at infancy establishes an intimate relationship with you and their developing a love for reading. 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is a self-directed national program that promotes reading to your newborn, toddler and pre-school child. Register for this free, on-going program at the circulation desk.


Have a story about Williams Bay you'd like to share?

Come down to the library community room every 3rd Saturday at 11AM for Shore Stories!

A Shore Story is a special memory, poem, lyric, or even an illustration of your fond times experiencing nature in the Bay on land, or on water. At this Writing Session, we will reflect, write, and share our stories. Shore Stories will be collected and kept at the library.

We hope to see you there!




Please join us every 2nd Saturday at 10AM in the library Community Room for book club! Each month a new book will be chosen to be enjoyed and discussed. There will be copies of the upcoming book available behind the desk at the library! We can't wait to see you!


Come join this fun group of book lovers as we discuss recent reads and old favorites. The group is currently meeting in the community room here at the library. We can't wait to see you there!
