Ask a Librarian


Stop by the Library and visit with a librarian who can help you find the library’s books, DVDs, CDs, and research materials. Specialized questions regarding research and local history resources are best answered in-person.

By Phone

Give us a call 507-444-2460 if you have a short question or comment about any library service. We can help direct you to the appropriate resources.

By Email

Great for quick questions or comments about the library, programs, services, collections and employment. We try to answer all questions sent via email in 48 hours or less. If you have more lengthy research questions it is best to ask a librarian in-person. Send an email to the Library.
