Plans are underway for the construction of the Collaboratory @ WPL. Our flexible, future-proof space will offer makerspace and digital media resources. Through this project, we strive to bring new opportunities for you to learn, make, and create at your public library.

Planet Ocean is a stunning visual presentation documenting the importance of our oceans as a global ecosystem. The film examines the wealth and diversity of underwater life, correlations between ocean currents and weather patterns, and illustrates how mankind now has the ability to alter these systems.
Join local residents Scott Gray and Sonya Wulff to view the film and share in a discussion afterwards.
