Building Project


Wednesday, December 19th @ 5:30 PM


Please join us for the unveiling of our Advent window!  We will have a special family story time, a craft for the kids, hot cocoa and homemade cookies.

Connect Through Reading


We are partnering with the New Glarus School District to encourage our community to Connect Through Reading.  Participation is simple - for each book you read, log the title on a paper chain link and drop it in the collection basket.  Students from the school district and members of the community will be working together to create a giant paper chain.  (Each chain link = one book read.)

Notice of Interim Hours

Notice of Interim Hours: Beginning November 2nd, the library will be adopting a temporary change in our hours of operation.  The library will close at 5 PM on Fridays during the months of November, December, and January.  We will remain open until 7 PM Mondays through Thursdays, and until 3 PM on Saturdays.  The change in hours is being made to ensure that the library remains fully staffed during the search for a new library director.  We will resume our 7 PM Friday closing time in February.  Thank you for your patience during this time of transition.

Building Project Update

At the September 18, 2018 Village Board Meeting, it was decided that Glarner Park will no longer be the site of the new library.  It is unclear where the new building site will be, but a committee will be formed with both Library Board and Village Board members, to consider a new location.  At this time we have no other information, but we will keep you posted on the process as more information becomes available.
