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!

February's theme is "Love Stories". The February mystery bags will contain a contemporary romance novel and a selection of other books and movies that tell the stories of the friends, family, and pets we love.

Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag today!
