Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony Dec. 3rd

All are invited to join Village officials in the annual lighting of the tree! Live music provided by the Whitnall Middle School Band, plus a visit from Santa by fire truck!

Post-ceremony, visit Santa inside or join Mr. Mark, with special guest Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley, for story time while sipping hot apple cider and nibbling on cookies. The Ben Hunt Cabin will also be open for tours 5:30-7 PM.

The Ceremony starts at 6PM in the Library lower parking lot. Parking will be available in the upper lot and on the street.


Subscription Boxes Coming Soon!

Starting in January 2023, the Hales Corners Library will be offering Library Subscription Boxes. Similar to paid subscription boxes, like Ipsy or BarkBox, the Library boxes will offer FREE curated content (based on surveys) in a two-month cycle. Half of the box will contain 1-2 books or movies that will be checked out on your library card and the other half will contain related goodies that you will be able to keep!

Boxes will be offered in limited amounts to begin the program on a first-come, first-served basis. You must have a current, unblocked card to participate and boxes will need to be picked up at the Hales Corners Library, like a hold. Newsletter subscribers will receive program information first, so make sure you are signed up for the Library Newsletter for the best chance to be chosen for the program!

New Park Pass Program

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) announced a pilot program to make state park and forest vehicle admission day passes available library card holders at 20 libraries across Wisconsin and Hales Corners Library has been chosen to participate!

Starting Monday, Nov. 1, library card holders can check out a pass from participating libraries. The passes will be valid for free admission for one vehicle at any state park, forest or recreation area where admission is required. The pilot program ends March 1, 2023. Click here for more information.
