As part of a statewide event, Kilbourn Public Library, Bike to the Library, the Wisconsin Bike Fed, and the UW Global Health Institute invite community members to Bike to the Library during the week of June 19th. Participants can enter a drawing for prizes and engage in special activities. Current prize donors include the Saris Cycling Group, Planet Bike, Bicycle Benefits and Field Roast.
The Kilbourn Public Library will be offering free giveaways all week for riding your bike to the library. The library encourages you to grab a friend or grab the whole family and ride your bike to the library.
In addition, on Tuesday, June 21 at 6:30 p.m., the Wisconsin Bike Fed’s central region director, Zac Barnes will join us for a lively discussion on how everyone can reduce the stresses of being on the road – even in this area in the summer - by improving our biking, driving and walking habits. From saving money, to using resources efficiently, to reducing the number of bicycle accidents and number of people killed on Wisconsin roads, this discussion will engage you whether you are an avid biker or a conscientious driver. Refreshments will be served.
Come to the library all summer long as we explore "On Your Mark, Get Set...Read" at the Kilbourn Public Library".

The Kilbourn Public Library accepts and appreciates donations of used books, CDs, videos, magazines or DVDs. If you are cleaning out your closets or garage please think of donating your used items to the library. The Friends of the Library turn your donations into money for the library at their book sales. Items may be dropped off at the library. If you have a large donation we can send the bookmobile out to pick it up. Your donation is tax deductible.
We are also on the lookout for Wisconsin Dells High School Yearbooks. Don’t throw those old yearbooks away - donate them to the library for our local reference shelf.
AND - if you have Legos that you are wanting out of your space - put them in ours. We are always looking for more to add to our collection.
We are pleased to announce that you - our patrons are now able to access your favorite digital magazines using Flipster™. Flipster is a next-generation digital magazine service that allows people to browse the latest issues of high quality digital versions of popular magazines, courtesy of the library.
In addition to hardcopy titles available in the library, we now have Flipster versions of magazines so patrons have the option of accessing the content at the library or remotely. Magazines can be downloaded via a native app for offline reading anytime, anywhere.
Flipster offers an easy, browseable reading experience. Users can browse magazines by category as well as perform searches for specific periodicals. An online newsstand provides a carousel of the most recent issues, as well as a carousel of all issues allowing for quick access to magazines.

In addition, there is an option to zoom in and out for better readability.
