    • Due to a generous grant from Federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), the five libraries in Washington County (Germantown, Hartford, Kewaskum, Slinger and West Bend) received an additional $3,000 in funding for 2018.  This funding is allowing us to bring you Tablet Tuesdays, a series of informational iPad classes.  Each month a different topic is offered at one of the five public libraries.  Sign-up is required as space is limited.  There is no cost to particiapte!  For information on topics, dates and locations please see our brochure.  The JRML is very excited to bring these classes to Hartford!!

Please call Tammy Dickman at 262-335-4497 to register.
