Library Services

You don't need to actually go to your local public library to benefit from some of the many services offered by the libraries. You can benefit from the services offered by Wisconsin libraries using a computer. You can read full text articles from magazines, newspapers, books and other information sources as well as search library catalogs online. You can locate books, movies, and other materials to borrow and also ask a librarian for help. All this and more is available right now from anywhere you can connect to the Internet. All of these online services are free to users.
