Residents of the State of Wisconsin may apply for a library card by signing an application and presenting proper current photo identification. Information given is confidential; patron privacy is protected by WI Statute Ch. 43.30 except as limited by federal laws which supersede state laws. There is no charge for the library card.
The patron must have his/her library card whenever checking out materials.
The patron is responsible for all items checked out on his/her card. In the event that the library card is lost or stolen, the library should be notified immediately. If a patron has a change of address or name, these changes should also be reported as soon as possible.
Replacement cards will be issued with proper identification for a $1.00 fee. When the new card is issued the old library card will no longer be valid. Only one card will be issued to an individual at one time.
A parent or guardian must sign the application and card for anyone under 18 years of age in the presence of a library staff member.
Within reason, there is no limit to the number of items that may be checked out at one time.
Library cards for non-residents of Wisconsin shall be issued for a non-refundable fee of $25.00.
