Library to YOU

Can’t come to the library? We can come to you! The Minocqua Public Library’s outreach program, Library to YOU, provides service to seniors and individuals who are unable to visit the library.  Available materials include books (large print and regular print), audio books, videos, magazines, and music.

Currently, the library stops twice each month at Minocqua Health & Rehabilitation Center in Minocqua, as well as One Penny Place, Wood Court Apartments, Country Terrace, Lake Shore Assisted Living and Milestone Senior Living in Woodruff. Individuals not living in these facilities may contact the library to arrange for service.
