Masks are required in staff office areas. Otherwise, there are no restrictions for Winona Library. If you visit, you can:
- Reserve study rooms.
- Request items and pick them up at the Circulation Desk. Contact us for more information.

Main Library: Limited Availability
Given space limitations and social distancing constraints, you can use the Main Library room for brief visits (15 min. or less) to ask quick questions, browse the shelves, or pick up materials. See the Doorside Pick-Up section for more information. Computers and tables are available across the hall (LSH 132) for longer study sessions.

A maximum of 2 people at a time may use the Special Collections room (LSH 132), which is open to students and faculty during La Salle Hall building hours (Monday-Friday: 8am-10pm; Saturday: 9am-3pm; Sunday: Closed). You can also reserve the Special Collections room.
