At this time, although the library is not open to the public, we are pleased to be able to offer no contact curbside pickup by appointment for our patrons. Because our primary concern is the safety and health of staff and patrons, the program is limited in a number of ways. See our FAQs for a complete description of the program, but the basics are as follows:
Since the usual way of placing holds through the online library catalog is currently unavailable, you may place requests using our online form, by phone at (651) 385-3673, or by email at email@example.com. At this time, we ask that you please limit your requests to items that are checked in and available at the Red Wing Public Library, as we are not currently receiving materials from other libraries. You may request a maximum of 25 items, of which no more than 10 may be DVDs. Currently, we are limiting pickup appointments to one per household every two weeks.
When your requested library materials are ready to be picked up, library staff will call you and arrange a pickup time inside of the following hours. Curbside pickup is BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. You MUST schedule an appointment with library staff to pick up materials.
Monday: 7:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Tuesday: 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Wednesday: 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Thursday: 7:00 AM – 11:00 AM
Friday: 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM
There is no need to return materials while we are closed but if you do wish to return items please place them in the book drop (open M-F 9am-5pm). Please do not hand them to staff.
We are looking forward to seeing (at a distance!) our library friends again. Please be patient as this is a new process and subject to change.
