We are closed on Monday, November 12 and Tuesday, November 13 to honor Veteran’s Day and to have new carpeting installed on our upper level. We hope to see you Wednesday when we open at 9AM.
We are in the process of installing hardware on our elevator lobby door to make it easier to use. There are buttons both inside and outside of the back door along with the door hardware itself to allow the door to open automatically. It will be wired and operational on the afternoon of Monday, July 23.
We are looking forward to our Summer Reading Program’s official kickoff tomorrow, June 26, from 1-3PM here at the library. The Goodhue County Historical Society is bringing their fantastic trunk of games-throughout-the-ages for kids and parents alike to try their hand at. We will have a variety of more modern games and activities available as well.
The plan is to have the event take place on the library’s lawn, but in case of rain we will move inside to the 2nd Floor of City Hall.
We hope you can join us at this and our other Summer Reading programs!
Summer Reading has just started, but we’re already going all out! We’ve already have nearly 250 kids of all ages sign up to participate in our reading challenge. We are still accepting registrants for it, so please come in if you haven’t already!
What else are we doing for Summer Reading? We have story time every Wednesday at 10am through August 15. (No story time on July 4th!) Weather permitting it will be outside with fun and somewhat messy crafts so dress in washable clothes! Here are a few pictures from today’s story time where Heidi read books about construction and kids got to paint with sidewalk chalk paint and small cars/trucks.
We also have other programs and they start next Tuesday with our Kickoff Celebration from 1-3pm. We plan to be outside on the library’s lawn, but if the weather prevents it, we’ll be upstairs at City Hall.
There is a lot more information on the Summer Reading page of our website, so check it out!
