Any resident of Wisconsin is eligible for a card.   Adults need to present a valid driver’s license, or some other valid form of picture ID, along with ID that contains their current address.  They must complete a MORE application card and agree to comply with the policies of the MORE libraries.  Applicants under 18 years of age must have a parent or guardian give their written consent on the application form before a new card can be issued. The parent or guardian must sign the card in the presence of the library staff. Cards are issued the same day. Only the person to whom the card is issued may use that card.

All library cards must be renewed annually so that the staff may verify the current address. In order to renew a library card, patrons must produce identification.  Replacement cards are available for $2.00.

In order to promote access to the Internet, Menomonie Public Library circulates mobile WiFi hotspots. A hotspot may be checked out by any MORE cardholder 18 years of age or older whose card is in good standing.

All borrowers must sign a User Agreement. Hotspots circulate for a period of fourteen days.  They must be checked out in person at the Menomonie Public Library.  We ask that the hotspots be returned to the checkout desk at the Menomonie Public Library and not in the book drop or at other libraries.  Each hotspot unit circulates in a bag with a micro-USB cord, AC adapter and instructions.  Hotspots returned after their due date are subject to a $2 per day fine and the hotspot can’t be renewed.  The user is responsible for returning all of these items in good condition. If the hotspot or cable is returned damaged, the user may be responsible for the cost of repair, generally $50. If the unit is lost, stolen or not returned, the borrower may be assessed a replacement fee of $200, per Menomonie Public Library’s circulation policies.

Performance of the hotspot will vary depending upon location and Sprint™ coverage in the area.  Be advised that the hotspots are an open wireless connection and the Library is not responsible for information accessed using this device or for personal information shared over the Internet. Hotspot users are encouraged to follow safe Internet practices.  Hotspot users should refrain from online activity that violates federal, state, or local law.

 

 

The library has a meeting room that is available to community groups and organizations when it is not in use by the library. The meeting room’s capacity is 80.  The meeting room may be used during regular library hours.  The meeting room can be booked no more than 90 days in advance.
