General Info & Services
Patrons must come into the library and fill out a Borrower's Application. Library cards are issued free of charge. Birth date and driver's license or State I.D. are required on application forms. The person whose signature is on the card application is responsible for all materials borrowed from the library under that library card number according to the policies of the lending library. Applicants under 18 years of age must have parent or guardian sign the application form. Library cards will be honored at any of the 30 Northern Waters Library Network (NWLN) Libraries in Ashland, Bayfield, Burnett, Douglas, Iron, Sawyer, Vilas and Washburn Counties.

The Northern Waters Library Network (NWLN) Catalog
Legion Memorial Library patrons have access to over 725,000 items in the NWLN Online Catalog automated system using interlibrary loan. If an item you're looking for is not on our shelf or we don't own it, we can request the item from another library in the Northern Waters Library Network (NWLN).
The WISCAT Catalog
If it can not be found in any NWLN library, we can request the item through WISCAT; which is Wisconsin Resource Sharing. Patrons may view the catalog in WISCAT to find the desired item. However, it must be requested through your local library. If it is not found in WISCAT, your local librarian will request through our system headquarters, and the search will go nationwide. The item will be shipped to our library. You just have to come in and check it out.
You can order items in person, over the phone or through the NWLN online catalog. Ask for assistance if you need help or you've never used this service before.
The library has free wireless Internet service and computers with high speed Internet access.
