Women's Retirement Challenges
Tuesday April 24th at 12:00pm (Noon)

A New Logo
You will note a new logo in the upper left hand corner of our site. This was designed by Rachel Gilpatrick, a Senior at East Troy Public High School. Throughout the Fall of 2017, Ms Lori Puls, Graphic Arts Teacher at the High School guided a group of students in a contest (sponsored by the Friends of the Library) to design a new library logo. Out of 14 submissions, Rachel's was chosen! Congratulations to Rachel and thank you to Ms Puls and all of the students for participating! Thanks also to the Friends for sponsoring the contest.
