Interlibrary Loan

If the library location you are at doesn't have the item you want, we can pull it from another library all at no charge to you. We can get items from all over Minnesota and bring them to the library for you to pick up and check out, all for free. To find items that you can get through interlibrary loan, go to our catalog for all Plum Creek items or MNLink for items statewide and place a hold. For more information on how to place holds, see our How Do I? page or ask your local librarian for help.

Meeting Room

A meeting room is available for use at the library on a first come, first serve basis. Please call the library to check if the room is available on the day you wish to use it and reserve it for your event. 

Homebound Delivery

Homebound delivery of library materials is available to patrons who are unable to come to the library because of advanced age, extended illness, physical/ mental limitation, as well as those in quaran-tine due to COVID-19. Delivery will be made to residents within the city limits of Minneota. Patrons can choose from the library's wide selection of books, large print books, audiobooks, DVD's, and more. Anyone who needs this free service can call the library for more information.

WiFi Hotspots

You can now checkout the Internet from the library! A mobile Internet hotspot uses cellular access to create a WiFi connection, allowing people to connect to the Internet where there is not typically strong, or any, WiFi access. Minneota Library has received four hotspots to be checked out by our patrons.

These hotspots were made available through The Minnesota State Library, a division of the Minnesota Department of Education that created a connectivity grant for libraries across the state. This program is partially funded with a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education using federal funding, CFDA 45.310, Library Services and Technology Act (LS-00-19-0024-19) Grants to States.

Hotspots can be checked out by any county resident with a library card in good standing. They may not be placed on hold, but are available on a first come, first serve basis. Since they are a limited resource, they are checked out for one week. They may be renewed under certain conditions and permission of the librarian.
