Outreach Services

Mobile Library

Serving the communities of Braham, Duquette, Giese, Hill City, Isanti, Jacobson, and Mcgrath*

*Current as of January 1, 2022

East Central Regional Library provides Outreach Services to serve many of the smaller communities in the region where there is not a full service library. 

What if you can't make it to the library?

For many people the joy of visiting a public library may be out of reach.

East Central Regional Library Outreach Librarian serves those individuals who do not have the opportunity to visit a traditional library.

The Outreach van makes numerous stops to several areas in East Central Regional Library counties carrying materials for patrons to browse through and check out. The East Central Regional Library Outreach van provides adult, teen, and children’s fiction and non-fiction books along with books on CD and movies on DVD. Patrons may also request specific items at any time from the Outreach Librarian and ask about our digital services including our downloadable eBooks, eAudio and magazines.
