Meeting Room

A meeting room is available for use at the library. For more information about using the meeting room, read our policy and be sure to fill out the Meeting Room User Agreement. Copies of the agreement are also available at the library.

WiFi Hotspots

You can now checkout the Internet from the library! A mobile Internet hotspot uses cellular access to create a WiFi connection, allowing people to connect to the Internet where there is not typically strong, or any, WiFi access. The library System has received twelve hotspots to be checked out by our patrons.

These hotspots were made available through The Minnesota State Library, a division of the Minnesota Department of Education that created a connectivity grant for libraries across the state. This program is partially funded with a grant from the Minnesota Department of Education using federal funding, CFDA 45.310, Library Services and Technology Act (LS-00-19-0024-19) Grants to States.

Hotspots can be checked out by any county resident with a library card in good standing. They may not be placed on hold, but are available on a first come, first serve basis. Since they are a limited resource, they are checked out for two weeks and cannot be renewed.

Interlibrary Loan

If the library location you are at doesn't have the item you want, we can pull it from another library all at no charge to you. We can get items from all over Minnesota and bring them to the library for you to pick up and check out, all for free. To find items that you can get through interlibrary loan, go to our catalog for all Plum Creek items or MNLink for items statewide and place a hold. For more information on how to place holds, see our How Do I? page or ask your local librarian for help.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten

This is a reading program designed for children ages birth to 5 years old and their families.  Register at any Redwood County library in Lamberton, Morgan, Redwood Falls, or Wabasso and receive a free book tote and reading log. Children will receive a prize for every 100 books read. When your child has read 1,000 books, they will be invited to a graduation pizza party, and they will receive a diploma, t-shirt and book!

Homebound Delivery

Homebound delivery of library materials is available to patrons who are unable to come to the library because of advanced age, extended illness, physical/ mental limitation, or those in quarantine. Delivery will be made to residents within the city limits of Wabasso. Patrons can choose from the library's wide selection of books, large print books, magazines, audiobooks, DVD's, and more. Anyone who needs this free service can call the library for more information.
