How to get a library card

Do you and your kids have updated library cards? Winnebago Public Library District cards need to be renewed every two years. Perhaps you've never signed up for a card before?

To sign up for a card, simply bring in one form of photo ID and one form of non-photo ID (see lists below) any time the library is open. Children under the age of 18 years old will need to have their parent's produce documentation on their behalf. We will ask you to fill out a registration card and enter you into our system.

Acceptable proofs of current residency:

Otis comes to the Library - every 2nd Saturday of the month

Otis the reading therapy dog visits the library every 2nd Saturday of the month. Reading to a dog can help struggling readers develop confidence in their abilities. Owner and handler, Leslee Dimke, has been working with Otis as a therapy dog for over 2 years. Please join us and read to the rhythm of a wagging tail with Otis the poodle!

Kitchen projects make great gifts and are ideal for beginning knitters.Don't know how to knit? We'd be happy to teach you!

Interlibrary Loans: What is it?

More than 5,000 multi-type (academic, public, school and special) member libraries contribute to the Interlibrary Loan program. Resources are shared among libraries in order to meet the information, recreation and research needs of library users. Individual libraries challenged to meet the requests of their users can do so through statewide cooperative collection management agreements.
