The Monarch Library System includes libraries in Dodge, Ozaukee, Sheboygan and Washington Counties and gives you access to over 1.1 million items. Your library card from any of these libraries will work at all other libraries in the system. You may also use your card to place holds on items from any member libraries and have them delivered to the Slinger Library for you to check out at your convenience. To place holds, visit the Monarch catalog and log in at the top right corner using your library card number. Your pin is the last four digits of your phone number.
*Note: if you are unable to locate a desired title within the catalog, please contact a librarian about the possibility of getting a copy from outside the system.
Do you think libraries only check out books and audiovisual materials? Not anymore! We also offer a unique collection of “things” to check out, ranging from crafts to appliances. These provide an opportunity to try new products or activities without a personal investment. A few of our popular items include craft bags, a "Code-a-pillar" toy, metal detector, Instapot and giant keyboard play mat. Stop in or call the library to inquire about the collection!
This collection has varied check out periods and all items must be returned to the Slinger Library. Items are non-holdable and non-renewable.
