Renewals and Holds

Visit the MORE website to learn about renewals and holds or call the library at 715-425-0905 for help with your account.


If you want to check-out something that is not held in one of the MORE libraries, you may be able to request an inter-library loan.  Inter-library loans will come from a library outside of the MORE library consortium.  Inter-library loans will come from a Wisconsin library before coming from out-of-state location, even if it’s in a library just across the border in Minnesota.  Inter-library loans usually take 2-8 weeks to arrive.  Check out periods might be shorter and must be renewed by our inter-library loan staff.  Inter-library loans picked up at the River Falls Public Library must also be returned to River Falls Public Library.

WISCAT is Wisconsin’s statewide library catalog. Search hundreds of libraries throughout Wisconsin and request items not owned in MORE libraries. Not all items are available to be loaned, but we will do our best to find the material you need. If you cannot find what you are looking for in WISCAT, it does not mean we cannot get it for you.

When you find the item you want in WISCAT, click on the “Request This Item” button. Fill out the form. Fields in red are required.

Questions, call us 715-425-0905.
