Other Info: In July, 2011 the Lake Elmo City Council passed a resolution establishing a public library system, authorizing a library levy and establishing a public Library Board for the City of Lake Elmo. This action was taken in response to Washington County’s plans to close the Rosalie E. Wahl Branch Library, which has been open in Lake Elmo for over 45 years and was one of the charter branches of the Washington County library system. The Washington County Library system marked a renewed partnership with the Lake Elmo Library on Jan. 1, 2018, when the library officially joined the county’s library system.
