Get a library card or access our catalog
Interested in getting a library card? We can help. First, make sure you don't already have a library card in the Northern Waters Library Network. Check HERE. If you do not have a card from any of the libraries in NWLN, fill out the Library Card Registration Form. This form plus an ID is all that is required to get a library card.
Already have a library card? Check your due dates, keep track of your reading history, & put items on hold HERE.
InterLibrary loan request
We have the ability to request items from outside of the Northern Waters Library Network (for example, from Madison). If you cannot find the item in the catalog (HERE), then you can submit an ILL request. Our ILL Specialist will search for the item and order it through WISCAT for you. Please use the ILL REQUEST FORM.
E-books and e-audio books request
Through Libby or OverDrive you have access to e-books and e-audio books with your library card. You will need your library card number. To sign up for Libby go HERE or download the Libby app. For questions along the way, feel free to email Eva.

Princh printing at Spooner Memorial Library is also free will donation. If you would like to make a donation with a credit card or PayPal account, you may do so when you submit your print job. If you would rather donate cash or choose to not donate at all, select "pay at front desk." Once you submit a print job, please email us HERE.
Wifi and computer access
We have free Wifi that reaches outside of the library. Search for publiclibrary (no password). Our Wifi is on 24/7 and reaches outside.
We also have public computers you can use with or without a library card. From these computers you can print, use your email, browse the internet, or create documents.
