Library Closing Extended

In keeping with the Governor’s shelter in place order, the library will remain closed through April 11th.  We hope to reopen on April 13th, but the situation remains fluid.  Thank you for your ongoing understanding.  Please stay home if you can and stay safe, friends.

LIBRARY CLOSING

CLOSED MARCH 18 – MARCH 28

In keeping with recommendations by the State of Minnesota and the American Library Association, the library will be closed starting Wednesday, March 18 through Saturday, March 28.   Further updates will be forthcoming as the situation develops.

The book drop in the lobby will continue to be available for book returns.  Items can be renewed through the online catalog.  If you are unable to return or renew items, don’t worry.  Any late fees accrued during this time will be waived; just let us know when we’re back in business.

Meanwhile, stay safe friends!

All events cancelled

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: The Lonsdale Public Library will remain open for our regular business hours for the time being.  However, all library events including story time are cancelled until March 28 and the story room and meeting room will be closed to outside events.  As you know, the situation is constantly changing, so check back regularly for updates.

Library closed

Ongoing dangerous road conditions mean we will stay closed for Saturday.  Don’t worry if you have items due.  We will take care of any fines.  We hope to see you on Tuesday!

Due to severe weather conditions, the library will be closed on Friday, January 17th.  Storytime is canceled.  Stay safe, friends.

Gentle Reminder

We love that our story room gets used by kids and families.  We love that all the toys and games we stock are fun for you to play with.   Thank you to the many, many people that use the room conscientiously.

But someone left this mess for us to clean up.  That’s not nice.  So here’s a reminder to please think of others and try to leave the room as you found it.

Also, please be sure that you’re not accidentally taking home anything that belongs to the library.  We’ve recently lost a Kermit the Frog and some dinosaur figurines, for example.  If you find them among your toys, please send them home.  We promise to ask no questions.
