Closed for Easter Holidays

The Iron Ridge Public Library will be closed on Friday, April 6th and Saturday, April 7th so that our employees can enjoy the Easter holidays with their families.  Materials can be returned in our outdoor drops located on the west side of the Community Center, or you can return them to any other SHARE library.  Materials can be renewed online or by calling the library at (920)-387-3637.  We hope that you will have a safe and happy holiday!

Election Day Bake Sale

The Iron Ridge Public Library will have a Bake Sale on Tuesday, April 3rd, Election Day, from 8 AM until we are sold out.  We will be offering a wide variety of baked goods and coffee.  Proceeds will go towards library programs and the purchasing of new materials such as books, movies, and CDs.  We will also have the library open at 9 AM, so come vote, enjoy a treat, and then stop in at the library to get a library card, check out materials, use the computers, or just see what we have to offer!

New Director

As many of you already know, Iron Ridge recently hired a new director, Tiffany Brault.  Tiffany is a recent graduate of Marian University of Fond du Lac, and she currently resides in Horicon.  Tiffany is very excited to be working in Iron Ridge.  She has enjoyed meeting many residents already, and hopes to meet many more in the future.

The library is now back to its regular hours.  We are open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1:00 PM – 7:00 PM, Thursdays and Fridays from 1:00 PM – 6:00 PM, and Saturdays from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.  We are closed Sundays and Mondays.  If these times are not working for you, please let Tiffany know.  If you cannot stop in, you can call the library at (920)-387-3637, send an email to ironridge@mwfls.org, or leave a comment here.  We would be happy to try to adjust the library’s hours now that a new director is settling in, but we need your input!
