NEW - Monthly Mystery Bags

Wondering what to read next? Check out our NEW monthly mystery bags for adults! Mystery bags have a new theme every month and contain a surprise selection of 4-5 library books and movies, an adult craft, and other treats. Return the books to the library when you're done with them - keep the other goodies!

April's theme is "Natural Wonders". The April mystery bags will include a selection of non-fiction and fiction books and movies about nature, animals, and the great outdoors. The craft is a paper butterfly terrarium.

Registration for the April mystery bags opens March 22nd, at 10:00 a.m. Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag.
