Monthly Mystery Bags

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

The November/December theme is "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" and includes a selection of winter, family, and holiday themed books.

The craft kit is a festive holiday shadowbox.

Registration for the holiday mystery bag opens November 13th. Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag. Ages 18+
