The library is once again headed back to appointment only. We have taken into account the recent rise in COVID-19 cases in the county and surrounding counties. We have considered the plea from Governor Evers in his newest Executive Order (#94), and we have considered the status of local hospitals: many of them are at or rapidly reaching capacity with COVID-19 patients.

The library does not want to be a contributing factor to the rise of COVID-19 in our community. So, we are taking what measures we can to continue providing the most essential services, while protecting library staff and community members.

Beginning Monday, November 19th, appointments will need to be requested before entering the library. Appointments can be made by phone, by Facebook Messenger, or by e-mailing cadottpl@cadottlibrary.org. Masks will be required by ALL patrons entering the building. No exceptions. If you cannot, for whatever reason, wear a mask: use our curbside pickup.

Appointment Guides:

  • Schedule a minimum of 1 hour in advance. 24 Hour preferred.
    • 1 Family at a time, or 2 patrons, maximum.

    • Printing, Faxing, etc.: Consider curbside service if possible.
