Circulation & Checkout

Enjoy using library materials!

The circulation policies of the Chippewa Falls Public Library have been designed to encourage patrons to return materials on time and in good condition. The goal is to have as many people as possible use and enjoy our collections.

Check out materials at either end of the Circulation Desk. Return materials in the designated return slots located in the center of the Circulation Desk.  After hours, there are four drops just outside the entrance to the library. There are three stand-alone metal boxes for Audio/Visual items, and a drop into the building for books and other text materials.
