Ramsey County Library canceling programs and outreach visits through March 31

Ramsey County Library is taking steps aligned with the new guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health and Saint Paul-Ramsey County Public Health regarding coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • We are canceling all Library events at all Ramsey County Library locations through March 31 unless conditions warrant continued suspension. 
  • Due to the closure of the New Brighton Community Center, the Ramsey County Library in New Brighton is closed through March 31. 
  • All other library locations remain open with regular hours. 
  • Overdue fines for materials checked out will be waived to enable people to stay home, if needed.

Guidelines for Library visitors and staff include:

  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with your sleeve or a tissue, not your hand.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water.

If you prefer not to visit a library in person, you may get help from a librarian by email or by calling 651-724-6100. The Library's large collection of digital resources gives you online access to e-books, audiobooks, magazines, learning tools, homework help and more. 

Thank you for your understanding.
