Welcome to the Coon Rapids Public Library. The library is your one stop source for all of your informational needs. We have a large selection of books, magazines, newspapers, and electronic resources available to be checked out by our library card holders. Here you will also find electronic resources, news, announcements, and a calendar of upcoming library events!
COVID-19 updates at the Library:
Great news! We're re-opening our doors today, June 1st!
Hours we'll be open:
Monday-Friday from 11 am-5 pm
Sat. from 9 am-noon
High Risk Individuals can call ahead and schedule a time to come into the library prior to open hours on Tues/Thurs from 10am-11am.
Here's what you can expect when you come into the library and how to safely use our modified services:
We ask that you practice social distancing when entering/exiting the library as well as when you are in the library.
We politely request that you wear a mask when entering the library.
We ask that you use the hand sanitizer (provided by the library) when entering the library.
No children under the age of 16 will be allowed in the library without an adult parent/guardian present.
We will not be able to allow computer use during this time due to the reliable availability of disinfectant materials (This is subject to change once resources become readily available.)
All seating areas/toys/puzzles/activities are unavailable during this time. Daily newspapers will also be unavailable for patron use, however magazines can be checked out. (Please keep in mind that magazines cannot be disinfected.)
Copying/faxing services will be available, but will be done by STAFF ONLY and will need to be pre-paid at the desk BEFORE any service is completed. We will ask for EXACT change only during this time. (Feel free to give us a call if you have questions on cost/time of item(s).)
All items will be returned through our book drop and have to be disinfected and quarantined for 72 hrs. before getting checked out to another patron.
CURBSIDE PICKUP WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE FOR ALL THOSE PATRONS ENJOYING THAT SERVICE!
You can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org OR call us at 712/999-5410 during business hours if you have any questions. (Or feel free to call us and leave a voicemail.)
Once we get items pulled and checked out, we’ll notify you of a date/time-frame when your books can be picked up inside the front entrance of the municipal building.
If you are a high-risk individual please let us know and we'll accommodate a special pickup time for you.
We are sorry but at this time until more libraries open their doors we won't be able to take any inter-library loan requests.
We want to keep our staff, our patrons, and the public safe during this phase of re-opening, so if necessary the Library Director will adjust services as needed. The Library Board will review re-opening phases periodically as well.
Give us a call if you have any questions!
