A First Day Reminder

Unless something drastic happens, this is the last first day of school for my family. Instead, we will begin a new cycle of first days after our youngest graduates this spring. For the most part, firsts are an exciting step in life’s journey. They mean we are moving forward and experiencing new things.

Whether you are a new teacher or a seasoned staff member, a new student to our district or one returning for the 13th time, welcome back! May this be your best school year yet. We are here to help you find the perfect book for both leisure and academic reading.

If you are new to our community or simply new to Meinders Community Library, stop out and see what we have to offer. Our stacks are filled with a wide range of fiction and nonfiction for all ages and interests. Further, our We Are Water MN traveling exhibit is here until September 13.

As we are a combined school and public library, the first day of this new school year comes with a special reminder regarding the pandemic.

“Due to the circulating and highly contagious Delta variant, CDC recommends universal indoor masking by all students (age 2 and older), staff, teachers, and visitors to K-12 schools, regardless of vaccination status.”

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

Before visiting the library, please keep the following in mind:

  • Masking is not currently required for anyone in the School District or the public library. We will let you know if this changes.
  • While Meinders Community Library staff will mask up, we can’t guarantee that other individuals in the library during your visit will be masked or vaccinated. As such, we encourage all patrons to follow CDC recommendations to help keep themselves and their fellow bibliophiles as safe as possible.
  • Meinders Library will continue to check out books for curbside pick up. Simply let us know when you will be arriving, and we will check out your materials and leave them in the vestibule.
  • We will offer delivery of library books for home-bound patrons within Pipestone City limits. Please call, email, or use the form below to request delivery services. Out of town patrons may contact the library and we will work on finding a volunteer to accommodate your request.
