If you aren't ready to visit your library, you may still take advantage of Curbside Pickup or make a 1-hour Computer Appointment during Appointment Hours.

Which safety guidelines are Scott County Libraries following? 

Following guidance from the Minnesota Department of Health and Scott County Public Health, we are observing these important safety precautions:  

  • Face Masks: We require all visitors over the age of five to wear masks. Library staff will also be wearing masks. 
  • In & Out: We ask you to limit your visits to 30 minutes or less. 
  • Social Distancing: We encourage you to keep a distance of at least six feet between yourself, other customers, and library staff. 
  • Limited Capacity: We are limiting the number of people allowed in the library at one time. This means you may be asked to wait outside the building for a short time until it is safe to enter. 
  • Cleaning: We are increasing cleaning throughout the library, including high-touch surfaces.
