SW News Media: Tiny library set up in Shakopee laundromat

Shakopee residents can visit Scott County Library’s “Wash and Learn” at Giant Wash Coin Laundry on 401 First Ave. W every Monday night from 6 to 8 p.m. The program has brought a bookshelf and a pair of computers to the laundromat on a six-week pilot program sponsored by the nonprofit Libraries Without Borders.

“It’s a way to reach folks who don’t usually come into the library,” said Paula Keith, the Scott County librarian in charge of the program. “I like coming in and seeing the books scattered about because I know people have been reading them,” she said.
