Circulation Policies

Anyone who attends or works for Nicolet College, or who resides within Nicolet's six county district may use the library and get a library card. Library card holders can make use of all library services and borrow materials from the library. To borrow materials:

If you live in the Rhinelander area, go to the library on the Nicolet College campus.


If you live in the Minocqua area, go to the library at Outreach - Lakeland and request materials. These requests may take 2 to 3 days.


Materials (other than interlibrary loans) may be returned to either campus.


If you live outside of the Rhinelander-Minocqua area, go to your local library and request materials through Interlibrary Loan. These requests may take up to a week or longer.

Library Cards


All borrowers are required to present a valid library card in order to borrow materials from the Richard J. Brown Library. Application forms are available at the Circulation Desk. A driver's license, or some other form of picture ID is required during the application process. There are no charges for library cards; however, patrons will be charged a $5.00 fee to replace a lost or stolen card. No other form of identification will be accepted for borrowing purposes.
