Suggestions & Questions from Our Library Users

2. Great day! I am a constant user of this amazing library. I use the study
rooms constantly for tutoring students (usually study room 1 & 2) I have
notice the tables not very clean. I often wipe them clean w/ Purell wipes

don’t need to have the keytag separately.
If using the WNPL mobile app, your library card number, as well as
a barcode including the card number, can be saved within the app.
The barcode within the app can be used with our self-check
machines within the building for fast and easy checkouts. Please
feel free to ask public desk staff to learn more about accessing this
barcode, as well as using our self-check stations.
