trio 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 trio 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 trio 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 Library has kicked off it's annual Winter Wonderland Reading Program!  Stop in to get your punch card and start reading your way towards 12 books by March 31!  This year's incentive is a Culver's gift card.  Special thanks to the Friends of the Slinger Community Library for sponsoring this program!
  • Please join us for a Renovation Celebration Open House on Saturday, January 10, 2015 from 10am-1pm.  The paint is dry, the new carpet is in and the new furnishings have arrived.  Light refreshments will be served.  Hope to see you there!
  • The Friends of the Slinger Community Library are hosting their annual Casino Night on Saturday, February 7, 2015.  Doors open at 5:30pm with play beginning at 6pm.  Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door.  Due to space in the library, there is a limit of 150 ticket sales to adults age 21 and over.  Tickets are avaialble at the library. 
  • The Library has partnered with the Wisconsin Association of Free and Charitable Clinics to offer weekly, in-person insurance enrollment help.  Starting Tuesday, January 13, a Marketplace certified insurance agent will be available to answer your Healthcare Reform insurance questions, review private insurance plans and Badgercare, and help you select the best plan for yourself and your family. Health insurance open enrollment ends February 15, 2015. This means that after this date you will not be able to purchase private health insurance through the Marketplace unless you have a qualifying life event (i.e. birth of a child, divorce, etc...). Tuesdays in January and February are a great opporunity to sign-up for qualified insurance and avoid the penalty in 2015.  This assistance is free with no obligation to purchase insurance. You can also get answers to Medicare and non-Marketplace (open market) insurance questions.  Please call Jessica at 262-323-9069 to reserve an appointment.  Dates and times are listed here
