We Started Small

Fifty-five years ago the 4-H Club collected books in their little coaster wagons to start a library in the Village of Pine River.

In June of 1960 the library became a reality.

For years it was run by volunteers checking out books that had been donated by the citizens of Pine River. Since those days, Pine River Library has continued to increase its services and collections to meet the changing needs of its community.

Continued Growth -- At present, the Pine River Library serves 2400 people in two townships. We have over 10,000 Print Books on the shelves, more than 2,000 DVDs to choose from and over 1,000 Audio Materials. Not to mention the Electronic Books and soon to come, Electronic Magazines also.

Programs -- Story Hour for preschoolers meet every Wednesday morning throughout the School Year and Summer Reading meets for 6 weeks in the summer.

Young and old alike love the Pine River Library.

These are tentative topics and may change as needed.

Please consider donating your gently used e-readers to us!

Is someone in your house upgrading to a new iPad, Nook or Kindle?  

Please consider donating the old one to the Leon-Saxeville Library.

The donated items will be incorporated into our library’s e-reader lending program.  The iPads will stay in house and be used to create a mobile discovery station connected with various themes/topics of interest to the kids. 


If you are interested, here’s what to do:

  • Check to make sure the device is in working order.
  • Gather up related power cords, chargers, cases, etc.
  • For Kindles and Nooks, deregister the e-reader from your Amazon or B&N account.
  • For iPads, go to settings, reset, and reset all settings to restore the device to factory settings.
  • Drop off the device, charger, cover, etc at the library during normal business hours.
  • Is your device broken?  Please don’t throw it in the trash – recycle it!  Amazon and Apple have recycling programs or check the WI Dept of DNR web site for options at www.dnr.state.wi.us.
