The staff at Owatonna Public Library is very helpful. They will take you right to what you need. A ton of special events during the summer to keep the little one involved.

I have been using our local library for years and years. I cannot believe everyone does not have a card! I take my grandkids every single week. They know who we are and welcome us every week.

From the time you pull up to this building you'll notice the history of this great building. It's to bad building like this aren't built much any more. Very large selection of books as you would expect. This place won't disappoint.

Took our little guy here on a rainy day this summer and he really enjoyed himself. They've got lots of play things out and ready for use. He made friends, and didn't want to leave. The book selection is broad, and they have good movies...More
