About the Library

Inside the Library

History
In 1904 with a $10,000 Andrew Carnegie Grant, a public library was built on the corner of Fourth and Jefferson. That building served Redwood Falls for ninety-one years. Following the construction of the new library at Chestnut and Lincoln, the old building was sold to a law firm.

In 1989 the library commission authorized a community needs study and initiated the planning processes. In 1994 the community accepted a donor’s challenge to match a $500,000 donation. The recognition wall records the community response and the accomplishment of building a 1.8 million-dollar 14,150 sq. ft. library without tax dollars. Ground breaking began in May of 1995; the building was completed in December 1995. Library services in the new facility began on January 23, 1996.

Library Cards
Library cards are available from the Redwood Falls Public Library or any member library of the Plum Creek Library System. Applicants will be required to provide a picture ID and proof of their current address. Examples would include a drivers license with the applicant's current address or any official letter or document, including but not limited to checks, bills, rent receipts, voter's card, etc. Anyone under the age of sixteen must have the registration form signed by a parent.

Patrons living outside the Plum Creek Library System may use a valid regional library card from their own community, or they may apply for nonresident or temporary library cards, which are available for a fee. Please contact the library at 507-627-8650 for more information.

Library cards are needed to check out library materials, use a computer, rent equipment, or use a study room.
