Library  Cards:

All Wisconsin Residents are eligible for a free library card. Obtaining a library card is easy:  All you need is a Wisconsin photo ID and proof of address (like a utility bill or rental agreement with your name and address on it).  Children in kindergarten and up may sign up for their own library card with a parent’s permission and signature.

Interlibrary Loans:

There are over 30 Libraries in the Winding Rivers Library System, and patrons can make requests from any of them.  You can  search for and request items from the comfort of your own home.  All you need is your library card barcode, your pin number, and Internet access.

1.  Find “Search the WRLSWEB Catalog” on the right side of the library’s home page.

2.  Enter a title, author, or subject.  Click on “Submit”.

3.  Search through the results.  Click on items of interest to learn more about them.

4.  Click on “Request Item”.  Enter your barcode and pin number (last 4 digits of your phone number).  Follow prompts to finish making request.

Requested items are delivered on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.  When the items come in to our library we will contact you and let you know.  If you would like help requesting items, we will be happy to help you!

Visual Magnifier:

In order to offer assistance to the visually impaired, we have a visual magnifier available for patrons.


We have three computers available for patron use.  WiFi is always available! Children under the age of 18 must have a permission slip signed before they are able to use computers. Patrons are allowed 30 min time slots for computer use; however, if no one is waiting, their usage time may be extended. Black and white printouts are 15 cents per page, and color printouts are 25 cents.

Fax Machine:

We have a fax machine available for outgoing faxes ($1.00 per page) or incoming faxes ($0.75 per page).

Copy Machine:

Black and white copies cost 15 cents per page, and color copies are 25 cents per page.

    Can we resubmit our items over your website? The books I have checked out are due back on 10/27/2017 but I have had to go to Chicago on business and will not be back until 12/3/2017

    Hi, Renee! Looks like your items have been renewed and are due on 11-17-17. You can also renew items by calling us (please leave a message if no one is available to answer) or by logging in to your account via our website (click on the WRLS search feature, click “Log In” in the upper right-hand corner of the search page, and enter your barcode number with no spaces and your pin number–the last four numbers in your phone number).

    Thanks for contacting us, and have a good trip!
