Per Governor Evers' order, wearing a face covering is now REQUIRED while using the library. Our social distancing policy remains in effect - please keep your visits brief, and limit the number of people in your group as much as possible. Please call us if you need help requesting items, or to learn more about your pickup options. Thank you for helping keep our staff and our community safe! Mask Requirement FAQ
A new StoryWalk is up! StoryWalk® is an innovative and delightful way for children — and adults! — to enjoy reading and the outdoors at the same time. Laminated pages from a children's book are attached to wooden stakes, which are installed along an outdoor path. The StoryWalk begins near the entrance of the library, and follows the sidewalk to our beautiful Patrons Park! There are 17 stakes. The story is Pumpkin Trouble by Jan Thomas!
Our wireless internet is on even when we're closed, and it reaches outside the building! Hang out in the car, or in Patrons Park, and you'll pull a signal from WBCMLWireless. No password required, available 24/7!

We are now open regular hours, our social distancing guidelines and building capacity limits are still in place. Please keep groups small, and keep visits brief. Have a question that could be a phone call? Don't hesitate! Face coverings are strongly encouraged.
