System Outage on Thursday, December 17

Winnefox will be performing an update to our library computer system on the morning of Thursday, December 17th.  As a result, our computer systems will be down, likely for several hours.  During that time:

  • You will need your library card in order to check out
  • Staff will not be able to look up account information, renew books, pay fines, or do anything other than checking out materials
  • The computer sign-up system will be off-line, but you will still be able to use a computer by asking at the front desk and presenting your library card to staff


Computer Recycling Fundraiser

This just in - now, you can get rid of your old computer, support the Friends of the Library, and save some money all at the same time!  Thanks to a generous service donation from Ripon Technology, LLC, you can obtain recycling tickets for computers, monitors and printers for a donation of just $5 (about half the usual cost of recycling) to the Friends of the Library for each item.

Tickets are available now at the Ripon Public Library.  Items to be recycled, with accompanying tickets, may then be dropped off at Ripon Technology between November 23 through December 4.  Each computer, monitor and/or printer requires a separate $5 donation; other computer accessories, such as keyboards, mice and speakers, will be accepted at no extra charge with at least one paid-for item.

For more information, please contact Ben Sprague at the Ripon Public Library (748-6160)
