When you arrive at your appointment time, call the library 715-748-2505 to say you have arrived, a staff member will bring out your checked-out materials. Have your library card with name showing OR a piece of paper with your name on it- visible through your shut window so the staff can verify the materials are going to the correct person. We will then place the bag of materials in front of your car. Or if you’d rather we can put them in your EMPTY trunk if you leave that open. Please do not get out of your vehicle until the librarian is back in the library. In this way- we are ensuring social distancing.
Due dates on all library materials have been extended to June 1.
Please return materials to the book drop only, we cannot accept items for return in person.
Once books are returned, they will be quarantined for a minimum of three days. While we are trying our best, there is no guarantee as to the absolute safety of our materials.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we begin to provide services in a new way that is safe for everyone. Wait times may be longer than usual, and you may occasionally receive a busy signal when calling to request materials. We look forward to seeing you at a safe distance soon!
