New Teen Advisory Board Takes Shape!

We are fortunate in our wonderful village to have a number of great teens and tweens - and several have committed to being on the new Teen Advisory Board.  The TAB in a library helps the director by planning teen events, raising money to decorate the teen area, offering assistance to younger children and the volunteers at the after-school program, and generally taking ownership in their section of the library and working for the good of the community!  Each one is eligible to write down their hours as part of their community service requirement for graduation, just as our Volunteens do!

Friends of The Patterson Sell Jerry Apps: A Farm Story DVD

The Friends of the Patterson Memorial Library are the "worldwide distributors" of Jerry Apps: A Farm Story, the Wisconsin Public TV documentary about growing up in Wild Rose and Waushara County.  By special arrangement with WPTV and with Jerry's input, until next February the DVD may only be purchased through National Public TV as a member, or through the friends group.


Hi and welcome to my blog!  There's tons of things happening at The Patterson!

We have a few changes in progress at the library. 

Children and Teens are our future users and patrons.  My aim is to create life-long readers and learners!  You'll notice that the Children's and Teen areas are a little more defined, giving each their own space.  These spaces are reserved for the Children and Teens - adults are asked to please use the reading room.
