Borrowing Information

Borrowing Information

All Winona Public Library materials are now fine-free.  However, please note that the policy does not extend to fines and fees on materials borrowed through the SELCO system. In addition, patrons of all ages will still be responsible for returning library materials within 30 days of the due date or a replacement fee for that item will be charged.

Fees may be paid at the Checkout Desk of the library or online via My Account in our catalog.

If you accumulate more than $10.00 in fees, loan privileges will be suspended until paid.


You may request up to 20 items on your card.  Items can be requested directly from our online catalog. You will be notified when items you have requested arrive and you have 7 days to come pick them up.


Items may be renewed up to two times, provided there are no requests on the items and they are not more than one week overdue. Materials on loan from outside the SELCO region may be renewed (1 two-week renewal from the original due date). You may call to renew items by phone at 507-452-4582, or online via My Account in our catalog. Please note that if an item is overdue you will not be able to renew it online.

Interlibrary Loan

Materials that the Winona Public Library does not own can often be borrowed from other libraries at no charge. Librarians at the Reference Desk on the second floor of the library can locate and request these items for you. Items can be obtained from libraries within the SELCO region or the State of Minnesota via MNLink (MNLink FAQ sheet (PDF)).
