Minot Public Library is reducing hours this week due to staffing shortages | News, Sports, Jobs


Due to a staff shortage, the Minot Public Library has adjusted its hours of service for the first few days of February.

This week, the library will be open Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The library will be closed on Saturday and Sunday February 5 and 6.

Reduced hours also mean some programs will be canceled, including Tech. Ed. at the Parker Senior Center scheduled for 10:30 a.m. on February 3 and a 3D printing program scheduled for February 3 at 4 p.m. Take & Make programs for all ages are still scheduled as scheduled.

The Arts In The City – Sundays at the Library concert scheduled for February 8 at 6 p.m. will now take place at the Carnegie Center in downtown Minot. This concert is co-organized by the Minot Public Library and the Minot Region Arts Council. Sunday’s concert will feature Subzero Winds, a wind quartet.

Groups that have booked a meeting room will be contacted by library staff if the schedule change affects meeting room availability.

MPL staff remind customers that items can be returned to the outdoor book drop and material will be automatically replenished when possible.
