Library Reopening Updates

20-Minute Express Browsing Appointments

Winona Public Library moves to the next phase of our re-opening plan with 20-minute in-house, "grab & go" browsing appointments. Curbside pickup and in-house computer use will continue unchanged. Due to construction in the Children's Department, all browsing appointments will enter through the library's 5th Street entrance. The Youth materials have been temporarily relocated upstairs. The elevator will remain available for those with mobility needs.

Please visit https://www.picktime.com/WPLbrowsing to schedule a 20-minute browsing appointment.

Hours:
M-W-F  2 pm - 5 pm
T-Th  9 am - 12 pm
Sat.  9 am - 12 pm

Masks are required for visitors and staff. We ask that you use the hand sanitizer upon entering the building. High-touch surfaces will be sanitized frequently.

Computer Appointments

Hours:

T-Th 2 pm-5 pm

Schedule an appointment online or call us at 507-452-4582.

Three public computers will be available for 45-minute sessions by appointment. We have one 20-minute express computer for walk-ins. Printing, faxing, and scanning are available. We are not able to offer headphones or additional cables for your use at this time, so please bring your own. Computers will be sanitized between users.

We ask that you use the old library entrance on 5th St. for computer appointments, not the Johnson St. main entrance where curbside pickup is being staged.

Curbside FAQs:

There is a limit of 20 item requests per card.

If you receive notice that you have other items on hold after you schedule your pickup, we will include those in your bag,  You do not need to schedule separate pickups, as long as you had received notice prior to the pickup date and time.

Although your appointment time is specific, we do leave your bag out at least 30 minutes to allow you some flexibility in arrival time.

The bookdrop outside the main entrance of the library is now open 24/7 to accept item returns.
