The mission of the L. D. Fargo Public Library is to provide quality materials and services which fulfill educational, informational, cultural, and recreational needs of the entire community in an atmosphere that is welcoming, respectful, and businesslike. (Updated during 2010 strategic planning process.)

The library is located downtown in Lake Mills, WI on the northern side of the triangular shaped Commons Park. Starting December 1, 2015 the library is connected to the Bridges Library System with 23 other public libraries in Jefferson and Waukesha counties.

Getting a Library Card

To register for a card you’ll need to have a photo identification (driver’s license) and something with your current address. Photo ID with current address covers both requirements. Any library card from a public library in Jefferson or Waukesha Counties can be used at Lake Mills as long as the library card is in good standing. All cards are blocked for fines over $10.
