frequently asked questions

Our Current Services: FAQs
We want to address some questions that have popped up. We are proud to continue to serve you during this difficult time.

How do I contact you? 

I Returned An Item. Why is it Still on My Account?
We are quarantining all items for 72 hours before we check them in. This means that even though you returned something two days ago, it may still show up on your account. 
When we do check them in, we will back-date them, so you won't get a late fee.

Can I Get Items from Other Libraries?
Deliveries from other libraries will start happening soon. However, due to the need to quarantine items and keep our staff safe, delivery may be slower. Please be patient.

Can I Return Library Items Now?
Yes, please do! Other people are waiting for them.
We are taking returns in our outside book drop. It's a metal door set into the wall on the east side of the library (the right side, if you're facing it from the street). Please don't try to hand returns to staff, or leave them in our lobby-- we are taking these items out of our book drop with gloves and placing them in quarantine for the time required to for the virus to die.

Can I Donate Items Now?
Yes, please do. We accept gently used books, dvds, cds, audibooks and vinyl. Anything not cataloged for our collection will go on our ongoing and annual book sales. Proceeds go to the Friends of the Library.

Why Aren't I Getting Texts or Emails About Holds?
Our computer system is still dealing with with aftereffects from the shutdown. Sorry about that!
We'll call you until the problem is fixed.

I'm not comfortable coming into the library yet. Can I still get materials?
Yes, we are still offering curbside services. Give us a call to schedule a pickup time: 920-295-6777.

Can I Print/Fax/Copy at the library?
If you are not comfortable coming into the libriary, you can email us your documents, and we will print, fax, or copy them for you and then arrange a pickup time with you.
