Friends of the New Glarus Library Trivia Contest

As we mentioned last week, the Friends are having our trivia contest again. This year we feel safe doing this face-to-face. We won’t be requiring masks while you’re seated with your team, but recommend you bring them along for interacting with other teams, visiting the restrooms, etc. This is your chance to razz the other teams directly, or see their faces as your team triumphs. Or maybe almost triumphs in one of the 6 rounds in this family friendly competition.

Discover One of New Glarus' Hidden Gems

Since 1955, the Chalet of the Golden Fleece Museum has been a popular New Glarus tourist destination. Once the private home of Edwin Barlow (1885-1957), the founder of New Glarus' annual Wilhelm Tell play, this authentic recreation of a Swiss Bernese mountain chalet contains treasures that Barlow collected over 30-plus years. His collection is especially strong in traditional folk art and items celebrating Swiss history and culture. During the past month, Village of New Glarus staff and Chalet volunteers have been hard at work getting the museum ready for its 2021 Season.
