SHARE Online Catalog Information
If you are placing a hold on an item and receive the following message "Your privilege has expired or your privilege is going to expire", do not be concerned. All this means is that your card needs to be renewed. Every 24 months the software program SHARE uses asks the library to verify your address and phone number and update it, if necessary. Give the library a call at 644-6171 and a staff member will be more than happy to renew your card via phone. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
 
Note to users regarding pin numbers for placing holds in the SHARE online catalog: At the time you fill out an application for a SLINGER Library card, you provide us with your mother's maiden name which is used for your pin number. Unless you have specifically asked for another set of numbers or letters to be your pin, your mother's maiden name is your pin and is assigned at the time your library card is issued. Please call the library if you have further questions.

News and Events
  • The Friends of the Slinger Community Library's Annual Silent Auction raised over $5,200! Thanks to EVERYONE who donated and bid! We could not have done it without your continued support. Thanks to the many volunteers who gave their time to help plan, organize and pick up donations as well as running the auction. The Library is very grateful because without these funds there are so many programs and services we would not be able to provide. So, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! We appreciate each of you so very much.
  • Congratulations to all 541 participants in the 2014 "Fizz, Boom, READ" summer reading program. 257,985 minutes were read which equals 4,300 hours!! AWESOME job! Special thanks to Miss Patty for planning a great program, all of the fantastic volunteers, the Friends of the Library for their continued financial support and our staff for all of their extra effort.

  • The Slinger Community Library will be joining together with 26 other libraries in Dodge, Jefferson and Washington Counties to become Trio in November of 2014.  Trio will be the new catalog for access to your library items. A library user will experience the same excellent service and accessibility to items either from the library or from the convenience of your home using the library's website.  Access to Overdrive for e-content will be one click away.  Mid-Wisconsin Federated Library System is providing funding for this project that will move the Slinger Community Library experience to the next level of technology.  Stay tuned for more information as the project gets closer to completion.   As part of the move the new TRIO catalog, access to materials in Racine and Walworth County Libraries will end on July 21st, 2014.
