Check out the One Book - One Minnesota


Minnesota, let's read together.

One Book | One Minnesota is a statewide book club that invites Minnesotans of all ages to read a common title and come together virtually to enjoy, reflect, and discuss.

Libraries are essential for connection, and through One Book | One Minnesota, libraries across the state will connect their communities through stories. The program aims to bring Minnesotans closer together during this time of distance and adversity.

Marcie Rendon's book Murder on the Red River is available here through September 26th, 2021.

StarID Issue With Library Databases

 Some students may be having difficulty logging-in to our library databases. This appears to be happening system-wide. Here is one possible way to deal with this situation: when you create a new account on campus, your StarID password must be reset (at to sync the password to the new account. This password reset might take a few minutes (give it 10-15 minutes to be safe) to synchronize everywhere. Once you’ve re-set your password, it should then work consistently for sign-in to library resources.

 If you are still having trouble, please contact the librarians (Lisa Abrazo, or Craig Larson, for additional support.
