Library Renovation Information
Click HERE to see the Library News Feed.
The Two Harbors Public Library will be CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC from Monday, August 19th to Friday, August 23rd for re-carpeting and other renovations. Please pardon our dust!
What you will NOT be able to do during the week we are closed:
– The Public will not be allowed to enter the Library for any reason. It will be a construction zone – and off-limits to everybody but staff and construction workers.
– Patrons will not have access to the books, magazines, DVDs, newspapers, the Archives, public restrooms, or public internet during the closure.
However, we encourage you to visit the Silver Bay Public Library! Your Library card will work in Silver Bay just as it does in Two Harbors.
– We will not have holds available for pickup. All incoming holds will be held an extra week for you to pick up once we are open again.
– We will not be able to receive book donations during the closure, and will will not have the Book Sale Books available for purchase.
What you WILL be able to do during the week we are closed:
– Return books in our bookdrop out front every day that we are closed
– Use our Wi-Fi on the patio
– Use our website to request books, renew books, and use our databases
– Visit our neighbor library in Silver Bay! Your Library Card will work in Silver Bay – you can even return Silver Bay books and DVDs here at the Two Harbors Public Library once we have reopened.
What you should do now:
– Ask the staff how to renew and request books online using our website. We’ll be happy to show you how to do it!
– Stockpile books if you know you’re going to need reading material during the week of August 19th-24th! We will also be raising the DVD checkout limit to 10 DVDs per family starting Monday, August 12th through Friday, August 16th.
– Enjoy the old orange carpet and chairs while you can – soon it will be out with the old, and in with the new.
Thank you for your patience!
The Board of Trustees and Staff of the Two Harbors Public Library are excited about giving the Two Harbors Public Library a much-needed facelift: new carpeting, new chairs, new computers, and more power outlets on the second floor.
Thank you to the City of Two Harbors, Lake County, the Friends of the Two Harbors Public Library, and the wonderful support of the members of our community.
We are doing this for you – and we couldn’t do it without you!!
