The Library is temporarily closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We will not be able to reopen on Monday, March 30.  We will be closed until further notice.

You may continue to choose Bayport as a pickup location, but items will not arrive for the next two weeks.  Materials showing checked in at Bayport are not available. No staff are available to answer phone calls. If you need assistance, please email library director Jill Smith at  We hope to resume limited service after the Governor’s Stay at Home order expires.

Due dates will be extended, there is no need to return items. We have no daily overdue charges.  All fines and fees incurred during this period will be waived.  Please do not return your materials at this time.  No staff will be checking in items until after April 13, so any items returned in the bookdrop will still show on your account.  Materials on hold will be held for seven days after we reopen.

Both Stillwater Public Library and Washington County Library are also closed to the public.  Washington County Library continues to offer limited services, find details here: WashCoLib/COVID19

Remember we also have a vast library of electronic resources, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, digital magazines and more available 24/7 through our our partnership with Washington County Library:

You can even chat with a librarian through AskMN!

We are heartbroken to close to our public, but are doing so in the interest of everyone’s health. Thank you for your patience and understanding!  We want all of you to stay healthy!
