Saying goodbye to Jefferson County

The time has come. As of September 1, we will no longer be able to place holds on items owned by Jefferson County libraries. That means all of the great stuff we used to get from places like Fort Atkinson, Watertown, Lake Mills, and Jefferson will not be available.

They have been great partners with us since 2007, allowing us access to a rich collection of non-fiction books, graphic novels, and movies that most other libraries do not have. Jefferson County will be joining Waukesha County in a new library system (name to be determined). We will continue to work with Dodge County in the trio catalog.

Questions? Please contact library director Steev Baker, who is always happy to answer questions about library stuff.
