Situated on one of the most dramatic library sites in the Midwest, the Lake Geneva Public Library is one of the city's most recognizable buildings. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright protege, James R. Dresser, the prairie style building overlooks the lake from its downtown location in Library Park. The unique building has become a key stop for not only library patrons but architectural enthusiasts as well.
The library offers access to over 1.4 million items for checkout via a shared collection across Walworth, Racine, and Kenosha counties. Additional items can be accessed through interlibrary loan. Library patrons can use their account for digital checkouts of e-books, e-audiobooks, and digital magazines. Other online resources include Ancestry.com, LinkedIn Learning, streaming films, and many others. For current program offerings, follow the library's Facebook page, or subscribe to the library's bimonthly email newsletter.
Library cards are free to Wisconsin residents, except Milwaukee County residents. Out-of-state or Milwaukee County residents can purchase a fee card for $25 per quarter year.
