Washington County Library Access
On May 1, 2015, residents of Lake Elmo no longer have to pay out of pocket, and wait for reimbursement for a Washington County Library card. The City and Lake Elmo Public Library have partnered with Washington County to bill the library fund for one family card per household.
The cards may be issued and used at any Washington County Library. Stillwater Library and Bayport Library are included and will also issue cards without up-front payment. The cards are good for books, DVDs, audio books, magazines, and other physical items, but not eBooks. Lake Elmo Public Library has a collection of eBooks available to Lake Elmo Public Library card holders; and the library welcomes suggestions for new additions.
The Library Board does not have the same agreement with Ramsey County. So, if a Lake Elmo resident would rather have a Ramsey County card, or for some other county, the resident will have to pay upfront and be reimbursed, as in the old system.
