Saint Peter Public Library

Our Mission: The Saint Peter Public Library welcomes all people and fosters a safe environment to connect, learn, discover, and grow.

Our Vision: We envision the Saint Peter Public Library as a place where all people can gather and are welcome. We imagine our library as a place to create opportunities for lifelong learning which will strengthen our community.

Historical Sketch of the St. Peter Public Library

The earliest attempts at establishing a library in St. Peter commenced in 1869, when a subscription library association of fifty members was formed. In November 1895, the Women’s Literary Club organized the St. Peter Public Library (SPPL). The City of St. Peter assumed control of the library in 1896. The first library building, located at 429 South Minnesota Avenue, was built in 1904 with funds from Andrew Carnegie. The library joined the Minnesota Valley Regional Library System (MVRL) in 1968. Due to lack of space and handicapped accessibility concerns with the Carnegie building, the library moved to a renovated building on the corner of Front Street and Nassau. After the Front Street building was destroyed by a tornado in March 1998, the library moved to its current home at 601 South Washington Avenue in May 2002.

Imagineer kit: bridge building by Lily Lyons
With all the things they “can’t do” this summer, thank you, St. Peter Public Library, for giving them something they CAN!!! They got their first book boxes this morning and set straight to the swing to read them, without even closing the car doors. They couldn’t wait for the adventures you chose for them! (Thanks for Walter! Declan’s day is made!)
