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!
August's theme is "Staff Favorites". The August mystery bags will include a selection of the library staff's favorite books from across all genres. These are the books we find ourselves recommending time and time again! The craft is a hanging bloom vase.
Registration for the August mystery bags opens July 19th, at 10:00 a.m. Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag.
