  • 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!! 
  • In partnership with the Alzheimer's Association and the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Washington County the library is pleased to offer a monthly Memory Cafe.  This is a time and place where persons with Alzheimer's or a related dementia can go with their care partners to socialize and have fun with other people going through similar things.  Our cafe is held on the second Monday of each month from 1:30pm-3pm. Please call Tammy Dickman at 262-335-4497 to register.
  • The JRML has also partnered with the Aging and Disability Resource Center of Washington County for  memory screens.  This is a wellness tool that helps identify possible changes in memory and cognition.  Memory Screens are available by appointment only.  Please contact Tammy Dickman at 262-335-4497.  She will be at the JRML one more time in 2018 on Monday, October 15.
