Reopening Plan

Have you been wondering what the library has planned for reopening? Take a look at our phased reopening plan! Our COVID-19 Preparedness Plan is on the last page, so read all the way to the end.

We are looking to hit Phase 4 on Monday, June 29, and allow up to three families/individuals to look for books at any given time. Appointments will be available on the hour from 11am-5pm, and can last up to 30 minutes. Only 10 patrons will be allowed inside the library at any given time.

If you want to reserve your time for a library browsing appointment, please call the library at 507-356-8558 or email us at

We are looking at the possibility of returning to our normal hours in mid-July if everything goes well, so stay tuned here on our website or on our Facebook page for updates.

Please note that any and all of this may change based on public safety concerns or appointment demand. Thank you for your patience!
