Book Drop Location:
The Detroit Lakes Public Library’s book drop is located on the exterior of the building to the right of the main entrance.
The library has partnered with Minnesota’s Legal Kiosk Project to offer community members the ability to apply for civil legal aid services, access legal resources, and, in some cases, attend online meetings with attorneys and remote court hearings in privacy. Learn more about the Legal Kiosk Project and make a reservation here.
Faxes sent to the library’s fax machine should be marked “Attention: Detroit Lakes Public Library.” Faxes cost $1 per page to send and $1 per page to receive.
Community Needs Assessment Update:
The Detroit Lakes Public Library recently conducted a Becker County community needs assessment to help guide its services, programs, and long-term priorities in the coming years. View the Community Needs Assessment Report Here!
Library friends provide invaluable support to LARL and community libraries. Whether called Friends of the Library, Library Club, Junior Friends, etc., these nonprofit organizations sponsor programs and special events.
