Looking to relocate or visit a “hub” of north central Minnesota. Staples could be just the place you are looking for. Staples has a small town feel and is a great place to “live, enjoy, learn, create, work, build, serve and lead.”
The local “hub” for learning besides the kindergarten through twelfth grade schools is Central Lakes College which has a Staples and Brainerd campus. The programs in Staples include Nursing, Medical Assistant, Heavy Equipment, Diesel Technology, Machine Tool Technology, Robotics and Automated Systems, Communication Art and Design, Photographic Imaging Technology, and Videography Production. They accept transfer credits and degrees. They also have over 70 career and technical education programs.
For those past or before the college years Staples has a lot more great amenities and fun “hubs.” They have a golf course and the Dower Lake Recreation Area. With disc golf, softball, basketball, volleyball, swimming beach and horseshoes there is fun for all ages! It also boasts Minnesota’s longest fishing pier. There's even an RV park with twenty sites! There's also parks all over the town of Staples for enjoying some outside time! Staples even has a library!
For job searching Staples has major employers including: Lakewood Health System, 3M’s Fabrication Services Plant, Stern Manufacturing and the new Timberlake Hotel and Convention Center. To play, stay and work Staples is the “hub” of Minnesota!
