Wisconsin System Services

Your Privileges through System Services:

Iron River Public Library is a member of the Northern Waters Library Service (NWLS), a library system that encompasses a large geographic area as far north as Bayfield extending south all the way down to Shell Lake, east to Sayner, and west to Grantsburg.  As a Northern Waters member our patrons have access to nearly thirty libraries without having to drive to member libraries!  When ordering material through the Merlin Catalog simply specify your library of choice to have materials delivered to a Northern Waters library near you. 

Furthermore, if you are a rural resident in a remote location or have a disability or transportation limitation that inhibits your ability to visit the library you may be eligible for the mail-a-book-service.  Please visit the following website for an application: http://nwls.wislib.org/index.php/for-patrons/mail-a-book-service
