Get A Library Card

The KJM Library will issue a library card free of charge to any Wisconsin resident. A State of Wisconsin driver’s license with current address, a State of Wisconsin identification card with current address, or a photo ID plus a piece of official mail (such as a utility bill, rent receipt, or bank statement) with a current Wisconsin Address is required to be issued a library card.

All eligible applicants must complete a short application form for Library Borrower Privileges in library.

An individual under the age of 17 must have a guardian/parental signature on the completed application form.

You are responsible for material checked out on your library card, including material checked out on it by others unless you report the loss of your card.

Replacing a Lost Card

Patron’s Rights and Responsibilities
The Karl Junginger Memorial Library recognizes a policy of open access to all collections, formats, and types of materials housed within its confines by all individuals and does not abridge or deny access to any materials because of age, background, origin, or views.

This policy of open access is acknowledged by the American Library Association, the Library Bill of Rights, and by the Karl Junginger Memorial Library Board of Trustees.

Libraries and governing bodies maintain that parents or legal guardians, and only parents or legal guardians, have the right and responsibility to restrict access of their children, and only their children, to library resources. Librarians and governing bodies have a professional and public obligation to provide equal access to all library resources for all library users.

Patrons must bring their library card, or provide a library barcode on a smart device and verbal confirmation of address to the staff when checking out materials from the library. Patrons of the public library assume responsibility for library items checked out to them. Included in this responsibility is the obligation by the patron to reimburse the library for all damaged or lost materials as well as settling any charges accrued by the patron for overdue materials.
