You can now reserve materials from other SWLS libraries. If you changed "your preferences" on you account to see only Barneveld items, it is time to change them back. The correct settings going forward are below. This will show you items from all SWLS libraries. WISCAT (all Wisconsin) library reserves will begin sometime in early August.

I am happy to announce that the Barneveld Library will be open to the public for modified library hours and services beginning on June 29th, 2020.
I have created the schedule above to provide access to as many library services as possible while relying on the most authoritative information available regarding safe practices for our staff, patrons, and community. This schedule may change based on the public health situation along with patron needs and use of services. Please check this website frequently along with our Facebook page for updates and changes.
The schedule and explanation of the services available during the hours open to the public (colored red, yellow, green, and pink on the schedule above) can be found in the documents section at the bottom of this page. PLEASE READ THIS DOCUMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE COMING TO THE LIBRARY.
Also, please read the newly adopted Safe Behavior Policy found by clicking on the red action button in the sidebar to the right or available to download at the bottom of this page. Even if you may not agree with the necessity of some of these expectations and procedures, your compliance will help bring peace of mind to your friends and neighbors who need to access library services but may be concerned about health risks to themselves and their loved ones.
We have been working on some changes to make our library a more welcoming and exciting place for your return, and we look forward to sharing them with you! Unfortunately for our young patrons, we have had to remove the toys and enrichment materials from the children's section due to concerns with sanitizing, but the summer library program is coming soon with a Story Stroll, activity packets, a community reading challenge and lots of family fun. More information soon!
