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 July 2022 theme is "You've Got a Friend in Me". The mystery bags will include a selection of fiction and nonfiction books about incredible friendships. The craft is a set of Mod Podge coasters.
Registration for the July mystery bags opens June 27th, at 9:00 a.m. Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag. Ages 18+
