*CHANGE IN PLANS!  The Aitkin Public Library will not be reopening on Tuesday, September 2 as planned. Due to unforseen
circumstances it will remained closed until further notice.  Please visit our website for any updates as to when the library will reopen.
  • Patrons may visit any other ECRL branch while the library remains closed
  • Call the library at 218-927-2339 and ECRL staff can assist you. If you wish to place a hold during the time the library is closed, you may call and ask staff to place the hold for you. If you wish to place the hold yourself, select "East Central Regional Library" as the pickup location and it will be routed to you when it arrives and the library reopens
  • You may use any of our online services (they will still be accessible to you)
  • You may still return items in the drop box while the library is closed
