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 14 hotspots to be checked out by our patrons.

Nine of 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.

Five of these hotspots were made available the Blandin Broadband Communities Grant.

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.

Loan Periods

Our loan periods are three weeks for all materials except DVDs (one week) and hotspots (two weeks).


Renewals may be done in person, by phone or through the Online Catalog. The item cannot be renewed if it has a hold, the renewal limit for the item has been reached, or the patron has been blocked due to fines or fees of $5.00 or more or more than 5 items overdue.

Items borrowed from outside the Plum Creek Library System cannot be renewed unless a special request is made.

For more information on how to renew, see our How Do I? page.


The library system is fine free with the exception of DVDs and wifi hotspots.

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.

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 or physical/ mental limitation. Call your library for more information and to get signed up.
