Library Closed Until Further Notice – Updated 4/17/2020

On April 16, Governor Evers extended the Safer at Home Order with some changes. “Public libraries my now provide curb-side pick-up of books and other library materials.” As of April 24, we will be able to provide pick-up services while adhering to safety practices for both you and our staff. At this time we are exploring how that will work. Your patience is appreciated. In the meantime please place holds on materials in the Monarch Catalog (www.monarchcatalog.org) that are available in the Elkhart Lake Public Library. Or send an email to us at elcirc@monarchlibraries.org.

For the time being we will not be able to accept the return of library material, nor will the book drop be open.

April 9, 2020 UPDATE: We have changed all our due dates to June 1, 2020. Please keep library materials until we reopen. As of March 1 we no longer charge for daily overdue fines.

Our WiFi is accessible from the park-side entrance of the library. You maybe able to use it curbside on Lake Street.

Our book drops are closed at this time, but due dates are extended until we re-open. We continue to monitor our email and voicemail. Please contact us if you need assistance, especially with accessing our online resources. We will no longer deliver library materials, curbside to to homes, due to the State of Wisconsin’s Safer at Home order.
