MONTHLY CALENDAR

Library Programs

The Library will begin to offer in-person, outside programs in June. Check back for an updated schedule!

Starting June 15th we will be offering an outside storytime program on the library lawn! Facebook live streaming of the program will be halted for the time being while we offer it in-person.

The Summer Reading Program will kick off June 14th! With fun programs and take & make kits for all.

Summer Reading Program Registration

Starting June 7th, families and individuals can register on Beanstack for the summer reading program.

Register Here! 

Patrons can also stop by the library to pick up a registration packet or for help when signing up for the program. Using Beanstack individuals can track their reading for a chance to earn prizes. BPL is also offering a paper method of tracking if the online method is not preferred. You do not need to be signed up on Beanstack to participate in the wide range of programs the library is offering this summer. 




The Library is much more than simply a provider of books. We pride ourselves in paying close attention to our patron's needs. Because of this commitment, the Brillion Public Library is a dynamic, interactive place to learn, to discover, and to explore. No matter what your age or interest, we have a program that is just right for you.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
Parents are invited to sign up their young children for the 1000 books program. The goal of this program is for a child to have at least 1000 books read to them before they start Kindergarten. To help parents reach this goal, the Library invites parents to sign up and receive materials to track their progress. Children receive small incentives along the way.  Please stop into the library to sign up.
Robot Time
Children are invited to experiment with our meepers, Dot and Dash, and robots during Robot Time. Please check our newsletter, calendar, weekly news, or Facebook for  current program dates.

Battle of the Books
Open to youth in grades 7-12. Each year, a team of Brillion youth participates in a Battle of the Books competition sponsored by the Manitowoc-Calumet Library System. Youth are given the titles at the beginning of the summer, and coaches work with the youth on the books. The battle is held in early September.
