About The Library:

This unique library is housed in a historic log-cabin in the heart of Northern Wisconsin. Patrons have access to all the amenities of a new facility: fully automated circulation and interlibrary loan system; high-speed access to the Internet and web-based email accounts; children's reading and activity area; and collections for all age and interest groups. We're located on Highway "M" adjacent to the Cable Natural History Museum.


Forest Lodge Library was founded in 1925 by Mary Livingston Griggs in memory of her mother, Mary Steele Livingston, as a gift to the Cable, WI community. It has been in the same building and location since its founding, and is now the oldest log-cabin library in Wisconsin. In its early years, it also served as a meeting place for community groups. Much of the original library fixtures remain in use today, including shelving from split-logs, a large reading table, and the librarian's circulation desk. A beautiful stone fireplace creates a visual focal point as one enters the library.
