Tips and tricks

Book return

You can return items to any Twin Cities library

If you’re traveling around the metro area, you can return Hennepin County Library books, DVDs, and CDs to any library near you. Items returned to libraries outside of Hennepin County will be removed from your account when they are received back at Hennepin County Library. Your account will be updated using the return date from the library that accepted your materials. If you get overdue notices, do not renew them, as this may incur unnecessary fines.
