Information on Our New Library System!

In order to serve you better and provide access to more materials, our library system is merging with Ozaukee and Sheboygan Counties to form the Monarch Library System.

monarchWhat does this give you?

  • Access to catalog with over 1 million holdings
  • More libraries that you are able to use your card at
  • A new catalog interface

However, there will be a transition time as we merge with these counties from December 8, 2016 to December 14, 2016. For a full list of what will be happening, click here.

To ensure a smooth transition for you and the library staff, the West Bend Library will be closed on Thursday, December 15, 2016.  Santa Story Time scheduled for December 15, 2016 will still occur.  Doors will open at 6:00pm for the program only.  No checkouts will be allowed during this time.



Announcement of New Procedure

Rules/Procedure Concerning Unreturned Materials

West Bend Community Memorial Library has changed how unreturned library materials that amount to $50.00 or more will be addressed.  If items are not returned or renewed by the due date, patrons will be charged the daily rate, ($0.25 per day for Books, Audiobooks, CDs, and Magazines, and $1.00 per day for CD-ROMs, DVDs, VHS Videos, and Kits) for the overdue item(s).

If the items are not returned to the library within 30 days after the due date, patrons will be sent a billing notice indicating the items are 30 days overdue and are assumed lost.  The bill will reflect the cost of the item(s) in question.  It will also indicate that the individual will be subject to a City of West Bend Police Department citation for theft of library materials, if the items are not returned to the library, or the replacement value of the item(s) is not paid in full.

Patrons will have 14 days from the date of the billing notice to contact the library to either return the item(s) indicated on the bill and pay accrued fines, or pay for the cost of replacement of the items.  All items must be paid for in full.  No partial payments will be accepted.

Patrons who do not return the items indicated on the bill and pay accrued fines, or pay in full the cost of replacement of the items within 44 days after the item(s) due date(s) will be cited by the City of West Bend Police Department for theft of library materials.  You will be issued a citation up to $691.00 plus restitution for all of the items listed.
