Help us capture the Waupaca story of this unprecedented time in history!

We want to exhibit your photographs (hopefully in person, otherwise online) to show what it's like to be Safer at Home. Are you still able to go to your workplace? What does it look like? Working from home? Show us how you're doing it. We all miss family and friends-what ways have you found to stay in touch? There are so many emotions right now. Use your photography to capture the hope, fear, kindness, sadness and every day details that make this 'snapshot' in time unique.

Awards (Waupaca Chamber of Commerce gift certifcates: $100/1st place, $50/2nd place, $25/3rd place) will be given for the top three entries in these categories:

Adult Division: Helpers & Heroes • Your New Normal • Acts of Kindess

We now offer browsing with limitations. Please watch This Video to see what our process looks like. There are also videos giving you a glimpse at the Children's Department and the Teen Department expectations.

These limited services are offered during normal library hours. We are asking all patrons to wear face masks and use hand sanitizer, both of which will be provided for you. More details are available when you call or at the door.

Neighbors have a critical role to play in the COVID-19 pandemic.  Who on your block might need help if they get sick?  Who might have trouble getting groceries?  Who might be isolated with no one to talk to?  How can neighbors lift each other’s spirits? 

Lots of great stories are emerging from neighborhoods all across the world:
