Poy Sippi Library Gets a Grant!

The Poy SIppi Library is one of fifteen libraries in the nation to receive the "Small Libraries Create Smart Spaces" Grant and the only library in Wisconsin!  This project is lead in partnership with the OCLC and Association for Rural and Small Libraries.  Over the next 15 months, the library will be working with community members to reimagine and reconfigure library space to encourage socially engaging and active learning at the library.  After conducting community input, action planning and prototyping, the library will create their learning spaces, using a $5,000 sub-grant toward materials. You can learn more about the project at http://www.webjunction.org/explore-topics/smart-spaces.html

Looking for Easter Baskets

Believe it or not, the Annual Easter Egg Hunt is just a few weeks away.  This special event will be held at the library on Saturday, April 20.  We are looking for items for that day, Easter Baskets, grass for the baskets and new or gently used stuffed animals.  Our goal is to have a basket for every child that takes part in the hunt.  These donated items can be dropped off at the library during open hours.  Thank you, in advance, for your generous donations.

When does the Library Close?

Weather Closing Policy

The Poy Sippi Library closes when the Berlin School District closes due to inclement weather.  School closings are posted on the school’s website or can be found on local news stations.  When possible, the library closing announcement will be posted on the website, Additionally, if you call the library during normal hours of operation and no one answers the phone, we are probably closed.  Please feel free to leave a message. Materials left in the book drop are back-dated to the last day when the library was open.  Items can also be renewed on our website.
