Unless there is a waiting list, items may generally be renewed for one additional Loan Period. Visit My Account to renew items and for other information about your account. If you need assistance or have questions, call 507-444-2460 or ask a librarian. Note that the renewal period begins from the day the items are renewed, not from the due date. Some items can not be renewed because they belong to another library and/or may have been requested by another person. If items are overdue or if you have too many outstanding fines, you will need to contact Library staff for assistance.
An LCD Projector is available for rental at $10 per day. Reservations must be made in advance in person or by calling the Public Library at 507-444-2460.
