Change is Coming to Your Library

The Cedar Grove Public Library is becoming a member of the new Monarch Library System.  Libraries in Sheboygan and Ozaukee County are joining with the libraries in Washington and Dodge Counties to create a new library system. As a library patron, you can look forward to a new online catalog, providing you access to more than 1.1 million items.  In addition you will be able to use your library card at 32 Monarch Libraries in the four county area of Dodge, Ozaukee, Sheboygan and Washington Counties.

During the transition,  EasiCat and delivery of materials from other libraries will be unavailable December 8th – 14th.

Thank you for your patience!
