Coon Rapids Public Library

 

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:

As of Monday May 24th, we will not be requiring masks when entering the building.  However if you feel more comfortable in wearing one, feel free to do so.

We are staffed regular library hours.

All library services will again be available, and we will still be offering curbside service for those requesting it, along with in-town delivery for those patrons that can't get out.

All computers are available for patron use with no time limits. We will need to close computers down at least 45 min. ahead of closing time for proper end of day disinfection on all surfaces. 

All seating areas are accessible as well as daily newspapers for patrons.

We are working on getting the kids' area back to normal (including the computer), so bear with us during this phase of re-opening. 

We are taking ILL (Interlibrary loan) requests, and most libraries are back to normal hours, but there still may be a delay in getting the item(s) you request.  We will do our best to let you know when/if library books are/are not available through ILL. 

Please note that our Summer Reading Program will be beginning on July 12th for all children ages 5 (by Sept. 15, '21) through entering the 6th grade this Fall.  Signup will be July 1-15.  Stay tuned for updates in the local newspaper, local cable channel, this website, along with flyers around town.

See our FB page for programs and prize information on our Summer Reading Program.  Don't let your child's reading "slide" by not reading!

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!  We are excited to be seeing you again!
