Eligibility and Use
Residents of Grant, Richland, Lafayette, Iowa, and Crawford counties are eligible for a library card from our system. Wisconsin residents of other counties with reciprocal borrowing agreements may also qualify for a card. Schreiner Memorial Library cards are issued to all children entering the second grade. Younger children must use a parent or guardian’s card.
If you have a library card (like ours) from any of the SWLS NetSW member libraries, you can use it at any of the other libraries in our system. That’s 29 different locations in a five-county area! Whether you work in a different town than you live or you’re just passing through, you can pick up or drop off books in any of the following libraries:
Argyle, Barneveld, Belmont, Benton, Blanchardville, Bloomington, Boscobel, Cassville, Cobb, Cuba City, Darlington, Dickeyville, Dodgeville, Gays Mills, Gratiot Annex, Hazel Green, Lancaster, Livingston, Lone Rock, Mineral Point, Montfort, Muscoda, Platteville, Potosi, Prairie du Chien, Richland Center, Shullsburg, Soldiders Grove, and Viola.
Remember, different libraries may have different policies and loan periods. Be sure to check the due dates on each item!
Registration, Expiration, and Replacement
Individuals interested in getting a library card must fill out a registration form at the library in order to receive their new card. Anyone under the age of 18 must have his/her registration form signed by a parent or guardian.
Each library card expires 5 years after the date it was issued. New or replacement cards may be issued free of charge after expiration, but cards in good condition need not be replaced.
A lost or damaged card from Schreiner Memorial Library can be replaced at any time for a fee of $1.00.
