About Renewing

Renewing only occurs when there are NO HOLDS on an item.

Persons can renew items in a variety of ways:

  1. Present the material and the borrower’s card at the library service desk.
  2. Present the borrower’s card at the library service desk and tell which material(s) you want renewed.
  3. Renew over the phone by giving your library card barcode number, your name, and what needs to be renewed.
  4. Renew yourself, on the Internet, by accessing your account through  You need your library card no. and pin.

Please ask a librarian for assistance at any time.

The Best Kept Secret in our Library System

A library card issued by any Infosoup library can be used at any Infosoup library. In tandem, materials checked out at any location can be returned to any location. What does that mean? It means, if I travel to Lakewood and check out some stuff, YES, I can return stuff in Seymour!! Or vice versa. If I’m enjoying a fabulous getaway to Door County, I can take out things from their libraries and return them in Shiocton!! The possibilities are simply endless and marvelous!

Still Haven't Found What You're Looking For?

If you cannot find the item you want in InfoSoup, the Muehl Public Library can try to request the item from another library in Wisconsin or in some cases from out of state. If you think the item would make a good addition to our library collection you can also use our ‘Suggest a Purchase’ form.  Either way we will try to help you find what you’re looking for!

Suggest a Purchase

The Muehl Public Library values the input of patrons in helping to build our collection and will make every effort possible to purchase suggested items. There are no guarantees, however, that we will be able to acquire the item. Thank you for your time and interest. We will notify you as soon as possible regarding your suggestion.
