Check Out

Materials must be checked out in person, using your library card patron ID. If you don’t have your library card patron ID number with you, just show an ID and the librarian can look up the number for you. If you would like a paper library card to keep for reference, this can be picked up at the library desk.

Books are checked out for 35 days and can be renewed once online, in person or by phone.


Please use the Book Return box outside the library any time during regular Textile Center business hours.

If you are outside of the Metro Area
The librarian can also mail books and magazines to out of town members at the USPS media mail rate. Patron is responsible for shipping charges both ways. To request an item be mailed to you, please contact librarian Nancy Mambi at 612- 436-0464 or email Nancy for a shipping quote. Postage can be paid using a credit card or personal check.
