  • Interlibrary loan service:
    • Many Arrowhead region libraries are circulating interlibrary loans again. Go shopping! Note that the exchange process is slowed by the COVID 19 procedures each library must implement.
    • MNLink requests began again on Monday, July 20. In order to handle thetraffic, Minitex is limiting interlibrary loan requests to five active requests per person. Items may take significantly longer to arrive. Because many libraries are closed, or open only with limited services, some items will not be available. Items will not yet be available from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities physical collections.
  • Due dates for books, audiobooks, DVDs, and magazines are being extended during the pandemic. We are accepting returns and shipping MNLink items back to the lenders.
  • Photocopy, scanning, computer access services are not yet available.
  • Printing. Please email your print-ready documents to gmlib@alslib.info ahead of your visit to the library. Tell us 1) How many copies, 2) whether you want back-to-back printing, and 3) whether you want black and white (20 cents per side) or color copies (80 cents per side). Please pay with exact change or check.
  • The Library building is currently closed to the public.
