Both the Willmar campus and Hutchinson campus libraries are currently closed. Library resources are available entirely online.
During summer sessions, June 1 – August 7, the Libraries will be open Monday – Thursday, 7:30 am – 3:00 pm (closed Fridays).
Returning Library Materials
If you have any materials checked out from the library, please be assured that we are waiving ANY fines and fees for everyone. We would still like these items returned to campus as soon as possible. Please return them as soon as you are able. They will be collected and processed back into the library as soon as we are able to return.
If you choose to mail the materials, you may use one of these addresses:
Willmar Campus Library
2101 15th Ave NW
Willmar, MN 56201
Hutchinson Campus Library
2 Century Ave SE
Hutchinson, MN 55350
If you would prefer to drop off materials when you feel safe doing so, they can be returned at the Student Services desk in Willmar or the Student Life desk in the Commons area in Hutchinson.
Ridgewater College offers a variety of different ways for students to ask the librarian for help with research papers or library assistance.
AskMN Chat Service
AskMN is a live, online chat reference service available at any time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Ask the Librarian at Ridgewater College
Submit a question and a librarian will get back to you as soon as possible. On weekdays, during the academic semester, you will receive a reply within hours, and on weekends and holidays, you will receive a response on the next school day.
The library’s email reference service is not intended to be an in-depth research service.
