Hello library lovers!

Starting this week, the library will be open Monday through Thursday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can now come into the library for express browsing and computer usage. We still encourage use of our curbside service whenever possible, if you prefer.

Newsbank Online Resource

The Hibbing Library now has a subscription to Newsbank. The main database lets you search past articles in the Mesabi Tribune/Hibbing Daily Tribune from years 1999 to 2020. Newsbank also comes with America’s News, which lets you read news and information from reliable news sources spanning the U.S. Finally, Heritage Hub is a database to search the premier collection of U.S. obituaries and death notices for genealogical research, from 1704 to today. You can find these resources on the library webpage under “Resources Online.”

Users can browse by skill difficulty levels, quick or multi-part classes, specialty techniques, or those video tutorials best suited for children.

Library Ty’s Word of the Week


In astronomy, the barycenter the center of mass of two or more bodies that orbit one another and is the point about which the bodies orbit. When the less massive object is far away, the barycenter can be located outside the more massive object. This is the case for Jupiter and the Sun; despite the Sun being significantly more massive than Jupiter, their barycenter is slightly outside the Sun due to the relatively large distance between them.
