About Darrell W. Krueger Library

Located less than a mile from the Mississippi River and in the center of the city of Winona, Minnesota, Darrell W. Krueger Library is the library for Winona State University.  The Krueger Library is a resource for the WSU academic community, Winona Community, and the greater southeastern Minnesota region.

Construction on the building was completed in 1999 and officially opened the academic year of 1999-2000. Winona State University celebrated the new library in a dedication ceremony on September 17, 1999. The library was named after WSU President Darrell W. Krueger on April 29, 2005, the year he retired.

The Krueger Library has over 479,855 print and e-volumes, access to more than 100 databases and is a U.S. Federal Depository with more than 20,000 government resources in paper and 100,000 in microfilm formats.

The Darrell W. Krueger Library is an exciting, sometime silent and loud, hub for researching, studying, and group work. It’s where you begin your research. It has a great collection of scholarly materials – academic books and high-quality scholarly articles. If the library doesn’t have what you need, they can get it from another library.

If you need help getting started with your research or if you feel stuck, stop by the Reference Desk and a librarian will be there to help.

The library is a popular place to study. There are study rooms and quiet spaces on the second and third floors. There is wi-fi throughout the building, printers on each floor, and a technical help desk.
