More than just books . . . A timeless resource for the community.

Onamia Depot Library was founded in 2009 by a group of Onamia Area Friends of the Library who wanted to keep Library services in town.  The City of Onamia generously offered up the Onamia Depot for a location, and it has since become a welcomed addition to the area.   Not only are there books, videos, computers and toys for patrons to use, but there is a reading room and meeting areas available. Special programming is provided for children, families, and adults. East Central Regional Library system visits on Tuesday afternoons and loans out their books from the Depot.  

Just a small building, but a ton of history inside.  
Stop and visit!  

Tuesdays 12:30-5:00; Wednesdays 10:00-1:00; Saturdays 10:00-1:00.

We are located at 204 Roosevelt Road - right across from the water town.

In 2017 we started the Onamia Area History Club being held on the third Monday of each month from 5:00-7:00. We have hosted a Cove Remembered day, with about 50 attendees; we have talked about Johnsdale, Camp Johnson, and Ericksonville. Michele McPherson from Mille Lacs County came and spoke about what great resources are available at Mille Lacs County, too. There are routinely 20 or more in attendance!!  Materials gathered by Roy Jackson and Grace Nelson, along donations collected by Susie Swiderski and Rita Shir are available at this time. Plus several Plat Books.

This past year, we have also added an Ipad which can be used to look up books or other tourist information about the area.

We are currently starting a webpage which should be completely up by January 2018. Stop by and check it out!      www.onamiadepotlibrary.com 

With funds raised through the GiveMN appeal this year we look to update our library’s technology, and expand our DVD movie collection.
