Rhinelander District Library – LIBRARY CLOSURE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE- It is clear to protect the safety of our patrons and employees and community as a whole; the Rhinelander District Library must remain closed until the end of the Safer at Home order.   As that time approaches, library management will evaluate the situation how and when to provide services, including curbside delivery. Until then, please do not return materials to the Rhinelander District Library at this time.  The drop boxes remain closed.  All materials checked out will have due dates extended.  Fines will be forgiven for items due during this time. Library cards set to expire in this period will also have their dates extended. 

*WiFi internet is available 24/7 outside the building.  Please, if possible, remain in your car while using this resource. RDL offers many items electronically.  Downloadable e-books and audiobooks are available through the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium via Libby and Overdrive.  Ancestry.com has made their databases available with a library card.  Badgerlink provides multiple reference resources.  Gale Courses are available for academic and self-improvement classes.   Virtual story times for children and adults—as well as other virtual concerts, theater, and tours will be linked on RDL’s Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RhinelanderLibrary/.
