Can’t remember your library card number? Set up a username!

Want to place holds or access your account without having to remember your library card number? Now you can! Setting up a username is easy and can be done from the comfort of home.

  • A username may be used to log into your account in place of using your barcode number.
  • Create a username by logging into your account, selecting “My Record,” and then clicking on “Change Logon.”
  • Once you create a username, the system will send you an email confirming the change.
  • Your username can be used interchangeably with your library card number to log into your account.
  • We recommend using your library card number to log into OverDrive or Libby. Your username will log you in, but some of the features will not work.

Please contact the Reference Desk at 262.524.3682 with any questions.

Sandhill Cranes

Last week, the Library installed a new piece of public art into our permanent collection. Sandhill Cranes by Tom Rauschke is a wooden mobile installed in the north atrium to fill that space with form, color, and movement. Stop in and take a look at this breathtaking piece.

Loan Limits Changed!

Exciting news! Starting today, there are no more loan limits on Library AV items, magazines, or pamphlets. What does that mean? Each Library card can have up to 125 items checked out on it from our collection. If you want to check out 125 DVDs, go ahead! Love CDs? Take home as many as you want! As long as you have 125 items or less checked out on your card, you can take home whatever materials you’d like. The only items that still have loan limits are: Laptops (1), Hotspots (1), Book Group Kits (2) and Launchpads (1). Please check with the Reference or Circulation Desks if you have any questions. The number of holds allowed per card is still 40.

Pay Your Fines Online!

If you owe fines of $5.00 or more, you can now pay them online! Just log into your CAFE account and click on “Pay Fines Now!” This option only appears if you owe $5.00 or more. A 5% service fee applies. You can also still pay at the Library, just like before.
