Getting and Using a Library Card

Sign into the catalog/your library account

Forest County Residents and Property Owners. A free card is issued to Wisconsin residents who present identification and proof of current address. You will be issued a card after filling out a brief application form. If you do not live in Forest County but own property within the state, you are also eligible for a free card. Children aged 17 and under must have a parent or guardian sign and approve their applications.

Your Crandon Public Library Cardholder Responsibilities

Any library materials checked out on a card are the sole responsibility of that cardholder.

  • Users will promptly return all borrowed items by the due date or pay overdue charges.
  • Users will pay any replacement costs assessed for lost, unreturned or damaged items.
  • Users will not lend their library card to others.
  • Users will promptly report any change in contact information.
  • Users will promptly report a lost or stolen card.
  • Users will obey the rules of behavior when visiting the library.

If signing a library card application for a juvenile, the users accepts responsibility for fines and charges on the child’s card and acknowledge that it is the guardian’s responsibility, not the library’s, to monitor and approve the child’s choice of materials and/or other information resources.

Failure to act responsibly may result in the suspension of library borrowing and use privileges, and that failure to pay library fines or return materials may result in local and state criminal penalties.
Crandon Public Library card holders agree to comply with the policies of other V-Cat libraries in which they do business.
