NEW - 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 "Holiday Spirit". The mystery bags will include a selection of festive and feel-good holiday themed books. The craft is an Altoid tin diorama ornament.
Registration for the November/December mystery bags opens November 1st, at 10:00 a.m. Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag.
