South St. Paul Library to close Dec. 1 ahead of new Kaposia Library opening

The South St. Paul Library will be closed beginning Dec. 2 ahead of the opening of the new Kaposia Library, Dakota County announced Tuesday.

The new Kaposia Library, which will be located at Seventh and Marie Avenues, will have a large community room, several conference rooms, study rooms and a reading garden, according to the county news release.

The name Kaposia refers to the seasonal village of the Mdewakanton Dakota, located along the Mississippi River in St. Paul and South St. Paul, and was chosen to highlight local history.

While the South St. Paul Library at Third and Marie Avenues is closed, customers can pick up holds and return items at a temporary location at Central Square Community Center at 100 N. 7th Ave. in South St. Paul.

Construction on the new library will be complete by the end of the year and it is expected to open in early 2024. Kaposia will be the 10th library for the county.
