MISSION: Dane County Library Service guarantees
quitable access to library service
for all Dane County residents.


The Dane County Library Service (DCLS) is the primary public library service for many residents of Dane County.

The Bookmobile provides public library services in Dane County cities, towns, and villages that do not have a public library.

The Readmobile provides outreach library services to various Dane County communities, often in partnership with community organizations.

The Dream Bus provides service to several areas isolated from library services.

The Dane County Library Service provides MANY more services to the residents of Dane County. At-risk children, elderly housing complexes, senior centers, and other community groups are served, as are individuals such as people who are homebound or who have disabilities. Click here for a full list.
