Metronet Home

open bookMetronet is here to serve all types of libraries in the 7-county Twin Cities metro area. As a multitype library system we do more than facilitate discussion around news and events—we actively engage librarians by advancing professional issues, highlighting best practices, and advocating for libraries.
