Getting a Library Card is easy—and it’s FREE!

Join your library community! You can access millions of books, e-books, digital resources, and more — all FREE with a West Bend Public Library card.

To register for a library card, bring a photo ID and proof of current address. A current driver’s license would achieve both. Library cards for ages 17 and under require a parent or legal guardian present. Replacement cards are $2.00.

Register online through the Monarch Catalog. You will receive a temporary barcode that is valid for 30 days. This barcode gives you immediate access to placing holds and using online databases. Please visit the Circulation Desk at West Bend Library to pick up your physical card.

Library Computers & Printing

We have a wide range of computers for internet access, job searching, genealogy research, and more. You can even use or Express Computer without a library card!

Our dedicated Job Center Computers are available for creating a resume, creating a cover letter, and job searching. Walk-ins are welcome, but to ensure your time slot reservations are preferred to secure a 2-hour window once per day per person. You must be at least 18 years old to use these computers and can make your reservations in person or by calling 262-335-5151.
