Curbside Pick-up Starting April 13

Rushford Public Library will be offering “Curbside” pick up starting              Monday, April 13 while our building remains closed

It is with great excitement that we are able to provide our patrons with curbside pick-up!

“…Based on a review of Executive Order 20.20, MDE has determined that public library services may be deemed as essential during the COVID 19 pandemic. Within a library’s ability to provide for social distancing and the regular disinfecting and sanitation of library materials and to follow Minnesota Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control health and safety protocols…” ~4/8/20

At this time we are starting with limited curbside pick-up with the goal to eventually be able to include additional days and services to fill our patron’s needs. 

Library staff will be available Monday 12:00 – 4:00pm and Tuesday-Friday 10:00am – 4:00pm to answer questions and to process requests either by phone, email or online catalog.
