Welcome to the Town Hall Library!

The Town Hall Library Board has closed our library to the public until further notice, in order to discourage the spread of COVID-19.  We value the health and safety of our patrons and staff.

All programs, story times, and McBroom Community Room bookings have been canceled through April.

We have minimal staffing here 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday only, to answer your phone calls and assist you in any way that we can for you to access all our available on-line services.

All items currently checked out have had their due dates extended until May 1st.  You may choose to return items in our outdoor book drop in the front parking lot or keep them until that date.  Hold requests have been paused.  No overdue fines will be charged.

If you would like to keep informed about the library's status, visit us here or on Facebook (look for "Town Hall Library, North Lake, Wisconsin"), follow us on Twitter, or sign up for our e-mail newsletter and notices by clicking on the purple sign-up button to the right of this page.
