How to Grow Root Crops – Monday, March 19 @ 6:30 PM

This class will focus on Growing Root Crops! Growing root vegetables poses a very unique problem. They grow out of sight, so we often don’t know if there is a problem until we harvest them. Come and learn some tips to get you started on the right track toward growing a successful harvest of all sorts of root vegetables.

Presenters are Holly and Joey Baird, aka The Wisconsin Vegetable Gardeners. Visit their website at

Tablet Tuesdays 2018

Washington County Libraries are teaming up to bring you Tablet Tuesdays, a series of informational iPad classes! Due to a generous grant from the Federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), the five libraries in Washington County – Germantown, Hartford, Kewaskum, Slinger and West Bend – received $3,000 in additional funding for 2018. The primary purpose for use of this funding is:

  • Utilization of technology to improve library services
  • Convenient access and quality library services for all residents
  • Support the equalization of access to information and lifelong learning resources

The public libraries wanted to create a collaborative project and partnership that meets these goals by providing the residents of Washington County with technology classes. Tablet Tuesdays is a series of informational classes, aimed to provide technology skills as part of a core mission of the public library: lifelong learning.

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 participate. Please call the library where each session is held to sign up.
