Anyone living within the geographic boundaries of the community or within areas served by the library systems with which this library has a cooperative agreement may borrow from the Hortonville Public Library.
A registration card will be given to any person who requests a borrower's card. Each applicant must present positive proof of residence (driver's license, Wisconsin State identification card, current utility or telephone bill, checkbook with name and address imprinted, or an expired OWLSnet Library card.) All addresses will be verified. If an address cannot be verified, the librarian will send a borrower's card to the applicant through the U.S. mail system.
Borrower cards will be valid for three (3) years. When a borrower’s card is renewed, the borrower must fill out a new registration card, all materials must be returned, and all fines must be paid before a new card is issued.
Any child or student under the age 18 must have a parent or guardian's signature on file at the Hortonville Public Library allowing the child to borrow materials. The basic responsibility for children’s' and young adults' reading rests with the parents or legal guardians. If a parent or guardian wants to decide what material they wish to have their child read, it is the parent's or guardian's responsibility to give a signed statement to the Hortonville Public Library.
Borrowers are asked to show their card to the library staff when borrowing materials. It is the borrower’s responsibility to notify the library if there is a change in address or if the card is lost or stolen.
All materials checked out to a borrower are the responsibility of the borrower. It is the borrower’s responsibility to handle the library's materials with care and to report all damages to the library staff. It is also a responsibility of the borrower to return materials to the library and to pay all fines.
Parents and legal guardians will be held responsible for the actions of their minor children.
