Due to preparations for the new library vestibule and entrance, the front door is not accessible until further notice. Patrons can enter the library through the door on the South side of the building, off the parking lot. Please use caution when entering this space, as construction is still in progress. If you would prefer curbside pick up at this time, call the library at 507-825-6714 and staff will bring your items to you outside. There will be no Crafternoon today, Wednesday, October 25th.

Upcoming Events & Library Closure

Meinders Community Library will be closed Tuesday, July 4th in observance of Independence Day. We will be open our regular hours the rest of the week.

Join us on Monday, July 10th for The Ant & the Grasshopper with Climb Theatre. In this continuation of Aesop’s Fable, The Ant and the Grasshopper, two friends compete together in the “Find Your Voice” competition. However, hardworking Ant and playful Grasshopper are having trouble finding their harmony. With the help of Queen Bee and the audience, Ant and Grasshopper will learn to BEE Kind, BEE a Friend, and BEE Together as they work towards creating a sound where everyone’s voice is a part of the chorus.

We also have another Games & Grub coming up on Thursday, July 13th from 5:30-7:30pm. Register to attend by calling us at 507-825-6714 or emailing

Exciting News at Meinders Library

In case you haven’t heard, Meinders Community Library will be getting some serious TLC, thanks to the continued support of the Meinders Family!

Please do not park around the house to the south of the library Thursday and Friday.

In fact, tomorrow is a big day. The house to the south of us will be coming down in preparation for a new parking lot and outdoor programming space. As this will be a big job (with lots of moving parts and vehicles), we ask that you please park in front of the library only when visiting us instead of parking on the street surrounding the house.

We are more than happy to answer your questions regarding our remodel and the impact it will have on our community. We will also keep you posted as things move forward. Just follow us here or or Facebook to remain up-to-date on any changes to hours or services that we may have during the upcoming remodel.

Thanks for your patience! And if you see anyone from the Meinders family, please let them know how much you appreciate their support for all things good in our community!
