LIBRARY SERVICES UPDATE: Sept 14, 2020
The library building is closed to the public, but library staff are available by phone and offering curbside pickup as a way to receive library items. Click here or call the library (218-748-7525) between the hours of 9:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday, and 10:00am – 2:00pm on Saturdays, to learn about this service and how to use it.
The library will be attending the Virginia Market Square farmer’s market, every Thursday from 2:30pm – 6:00pm. Visit the library’s tent to check out materials, and request items you would like to see the library bring to the market. Library attendance at the market will be dependent on weather conditions.
If you are requesting library items and receive an automated call, text, or email, you must call the library to schedule a time and day to pick up your materials. Please note that wait times for items coming from other libraries may be longer than usual due to our quarantine process.
We are accepting returned items through our outdoor drop boxes, which are now located by the main entrance of the library and close to the newly paved elevator entrance. If you are returning items, please use these drop boxes! If you have items from the library that were checked out prior to April 2020 we recommend you return the items before October 1st to avoid any future charges.
