The Mille Lacs Lake Community Library will be re-opening today, Thursday, July 30.  However,
as repairs are made on the damage to the building, the public will not have access to the back part of the library
and no public Internet access will be available until the repairs are complete.  Check back for updates
and thank you for your patience.
