WiFi Hotspots

Windom has 7 hotspots. Hotspots can be checked out by any Windom 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 one week and cannot be renewed. A Hotspot Loan Agreement must be signed before checking out a Hotspot.

Loan Periods

Three weeks for all materials except
DVDs & magazines one week

Renewals

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.

Fines

.10 cents a day per book/magazine or audio book
$1 per day for dvds
$5 per day for 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. Delivery will be made to residents within the Windom city limits. Patrons can choose from the library's wide selection of books, large print books, magazines, audiobooks, and DVD's. Call your library for more information on this service.
