Perham Area Public Library

Perham Library

The Perham Area Public Library opened its doors in 1921. Today, we have a beautiful, 8000 square foot stone building with vaulted ceilings that is operated by a full- time librarian and 40 volunteer staff. There is also a lovely children's library equipped with age-appropriate books, puzzles, computer games, small tables and stuffed puppets. Our library has been marked as one of the best libraries of its size in the United States three years in a row. Come see why!
