The Darien Library is part of the Lakeshores library system which means that if you come in and cannot find what you are looking we would be happy to find those items from another library in in our system.

Lakeshores library system services all libraries in Walworth, and Racine Counties, As well as the Share system in Wisconsin that includes Rock and Kenosha Counties. We hope that you come in and visit us and browse our selection.

We also have the ability to find items outside our system in the statewide system of Wiscat. If you would like to search on your own for items in our system go to sharelibraries.info and go to our library and you will be able to search our library and others. You will be able to put items on hold to be sent here if we do not have the item.
