PEQUOT LAKES — For the remainder of the snow months this winter, please note that on days when the Pequot Lakes School or city hall close for snow days, the library will also be closed, at least for the morning.

The library may open for the afternoon shift only if it is safe to travel. The library may close early if the schools close early or if on-duty volunteers feel conditions are becoming unsafe.

Closing information can be found on the school website — Pequot Lakes Public Schools/Homepage ( ). A pop-up box explains the closing.

Information is also on local radio stations, on the Echo Journal's website at, and under the ”closings” tab on the Twin Cities TV station websites.

Notes about this and that

  • We truly appreciate our patrons and volunteers. Thank you for everything you do.
  • We will have a new artist showing artwork next month. Be sure to come in and browse.
  • Be sure to check our website for information about newly purchased books and things going on in the library. You may also log onto our catalog at the website.
  • We have a great Facebook page where you can “like” us and find out lots of interesting library information.
  • If you haven’t found our new Book Return yet, be sure to check it out on the outside of the northeast corner of the library. It’s no longer in the old blue P.O. box, but it has a snazzy new look to go along with the decor of the building.
