While the Wisconsin State Supreme Court has overturned the Safer at Home order we are moving forward with caution, gathering information and seeking advisement from our library system, the Wisconsin Dept. of Public Instruction and State and Federal Depts. of Health and Human Services on how and when we may safely re-open in such a way as to protect the health and safety of our patrons and staff. In the meantime, we’re still offering curb-side pick-up of library items and lots of entertaining and educational content on our website and Facebook page. Read more about Curbside Pickup below on the News carousel!



Built in 1925 and first called the Cable Community House, the log cabin library functioned as a ladies reading room, community meeting center…and Cable’s first public restroom!

And, so ya know, the wifi is always on! Don’t forget about Little Free Libraries at Cable and Namakagon Community Centers.

The Confined by Corona Quiz Contest has concluded. It was fun! Thanks for playing!

Log Cabin Library in Cable

There’s lots of fun in the summer at The Forest Lodge Library in Cable, Wisconsin.

The learning center of the community

Lodged in a rustic 1925 built log cabin, the Forest Lodge Library is a joint library of the Cable and Namakagon communities and is located on County Highway M in downtown Cable, Wisconsin. The library is open six days a week and its services and programs are available to area patrons and visitors alike. The library shares a campus with the Cable Natural History Museum and both facilities are destinations you won’t want to miss when in the Cable/Namakagon area.

We would like to share this statement from The Katie Flowers Endowment: "Many things have changed this spring due to Covid 19 and the opening of the Book House for the summer of 2020 is one of them. We will not be accepting donations and will remain closed until it is safe for everyone involved." We all look forward to better days, when we can resume these activities and spend time in each other's company again! ... See MoreSee Less

Hey, Lisa. Thanks for thinking of us...and, I don't know just what to tell you. The Book House is not currently accepting donations. Not so easy to "social distance" within that space...plus, concern about the volunteers that man the Book House. (more like "woman" the Book House, truth be told, eh?) We also feel we will be unable to continue the "foyer book sale" in the library this summer...again because of the confined space. We ARE always looking for fresh titles for our two Little Free Libraries...we have one at each the Cable and the Namakagon Community Centers. If convenient, you could sure deposit them there, if there's room. I guess I should've inquired what you meant by "a few." Closer to one dozen or two dozen? If they are fresh titles and you don't feel like dealing with the Little Free Libraries yourself, and it's closer to one dozen than two, you could put them through the slot in the front door of the library...and would appreciate your letting me know...so I can alert staff. THANKS!
