Excite your mind, try out a hobby, learn a new skill, or just have fun with our new Take and Tinker collection! This is a collection of tools, games, and more made up of items that you wouldn't expect to find in a library. Take and Tinker is generously funded by Friends of the Whitefish Bay Public Library. Help Friends out by joining.
Browse the Take and Tinker collection and reserve an item with your library card. Items have a 7-day checkout (with a 3-day grace) and can be renewed up to 2 times if no one is waiting. Late fees are $.50 per day. Items can only be picked up at the Whitefish Bay Public Library. Items must be picked up AND returned to the Adult Services Desk. DO NOT place items in the bookdrop.
