Delivery Delayed by a Day

Due to a weather related change to the Plum Creek delivery schedule today, Meinders Library patrons can expect delivery items on Wednesday, January 30th.

The library is open today, Monday, January 28, though exercise caution in the parking lot and sidewalks if you choose to visit us. The blowing snow creates drifting as well as an icy coating on the hardscape.

If you need to renew items, you can do so without driving out here. Simply call or email and we will take care of it for you.

In addition, if you run out of reading materials and you don’t want to run out here, we do have a few digital platforms for you to access from the comfort and safety of your own home.

On the left sidebar of the page, you can find links to RB Digital, ebooks Minnesota, and Overdrive.

Thanks and have a great day!

Delivery Delayed until January 2

Closing at 6:00pm. Will reopen at 10am on Friday, weather permitting.

Due to the weather, our Plum Creek delivery truck and driver are out of commission until next week. Delivery will resume Monday. However, with the way the routes are scheduled and the New Year’s holiday, Meinders Library will not receive delivery until Wednesday, January 2.

Reminder that the library closes at 5:00pm on New Year’s Eve and is closed entirely on Tuesday for New Year’s Day.

To remain up to date on Library Happenings, please follow our blog at or follow us on facebook.

If you are uncertain whether the weather has forced us to close our doors, please call the library before making the trek out here.

Safe travels!
