Most items checked out from the Minot Public Library can be renewed 2 times unless the item is on reserve for another patron. However, the following items are exceptions which cannot be renewed:

  • eReaders (iPads, Nooks and Kindles)
  • Special Loans (Reference Books authorized for circulation)
  • Rapid Reads
  • Energy Meters and Infrared Thermometers
  • Interlibrary Loans (unless approved by the lending library)

Items can be renewed online through the library’s website or by calling the library at (701) 852-1045.


Patrons can reserve items to be held for them at the library by going online or by stopping by or calling the Minot Public Library at (701) 852-1045. Reserved items are pulled from our shelves once a day and you should allow 24 hours for the item(s) to be ready for you to pick up.

All items will be held at the library for 4 days.

Each patron can have no more than 10 items on reserve at a time including a maximum of 8 Blu-Rays and DVDs, 3 Video Games and 1 eReader.

Please note: If you will not be able to come to the library to pick up the items you’ve reserved within the outlined timeframe please wait to place your reserve. Finding items on reserve and making them available takes staff time as does removing the items and putting them back on the shelves.
