We will continue to ask patrons to wear masks while in the library. Our patrons include at-risk patrons and those who have not had an opportunity to get vaccinated. As fierce protectors of patron privacy, we will not ask you if you are vaccinated. Thus, to respect all and protect all, our mask policy will remain until concern about contagion is significantly reduced.

 At present, our doors will be open 11-5, Monday through Friday and 10-2 on Saturdays. Curbside pick-up will remain available.  

We are still encouraging one way traffic through the building, in the back door, out the front, but recognize that weather conditions may play a factor. Disposable masks, hand-sanitizer and disposable gloves will continue to be available inside the back door.

Public access computers are available for your use. Printing, copying and FAXing services are available.

 If you have any questions, please call  715-798-3189 and ask for Director Kristine Lendved.  Or, email her directly at
