R. H. Stafford Branch

The branch includes quiet study room, conference rooms, computers, fireplace lounge and coffee shop.  Walk-up and drive-up book returns available 24/7.

The branch features a Smart Play Spot, a museum quality installation designed by the Minnesota Children’s Museum to encourage early childhood literacy and learning through play. The nature-themed installation provides children an interactive opportunity to practice the five building blocks of literacy: singing, talking, reading, writing, and playing.

The branch also hosts a Collectors' Corner Neighborhood Trading Place to encourage children of all ages to explore their natural surroundings and learn about the objects they discover. The Trading Place is a collaborative effort of Washington County Library and the Science Museum of Minnesota. Hours are Tuesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
