Coming Soon!

Do these authors ever sleep?  Sometimes it feels like they publish faster than we can read! (Seriously, half of this list has multiple books coming out in 2019.) We also know, you don’t want to miss anything they publish. Add their soon-to-be released titles to your to-read list and place your holds now to be at the top of the list.


Weather Related Closings

Dear Winter,

We surrender, we bend the knee and whatever other way one can admit defeat.

Our outreach services to Hill City, McGrath and Jacobson, as well as our delivery services have been cancelled for today, Thursday, February 7th. We apologize for the inconvenience and currently plan to resume services on Friday, February 8th. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

PS. Everyone hoping for “Real Winter” please stop.

Shelter Locations

Due to the dangerously below zero temperatures, several shelters and community locations are remaining open 24 hours as a warming station for those without access to warm, safe shelter or housing. See locations below. We recommend that you call to verify details.
