Help decide how your Monroe Public Library should look! In the spring there will be some changes at the library. There will be a new layout of the first floor, new furniture, and new splashes of color, but we need your help in deciding the color scheme. We will keep the existing carpet, because it has a lot of life left in it. This limits our color options a bit, but we can still really spruce things up. It’s YOUR library so please take our survey and help us decide!
Join us for a special workshop — “Wrapping with Ruthie!”

Need help understanding the Affordable Care Act and how it affects you and your family? We’ve gathered a collection of the best resources to help you through it.
In the coming months, the reference staff of the Monroe Public Library expect to get a lot of questions about healthcare reform. We’re happy to help you navigate the available resources on your own, or assist you in finding one-on-one assistance elsewhere in the community. While we’re not able to help you choose the option that is right for you, we’ll help you get the information you need to make an informed decision!
We’re very excited to offer the Monroe Public Library’s very first DVD, Green County’s Gold. We’ve taken this vintage public domain film and made it available to you on DVD for the first time.
What is Green County’s Gold? It’s a 1951 22-minute short film showcasing the farming, Swiss heritage, and cheesemaking. You’ll also see footage from 1950′s Cheese Days and Green County Fair. You may just spot people or even a farm that you know!
The profits from your purchase of this DVD will help the Monroe Public Library play a more active role in preserving our community’s heritage.
You can purchase the DVD for $10 by visiting the library’s circulation desk.
If you’re a retailer interested in carrying Green County’s Gold for sale, please contact the library.
