“The Big Umbrella” is a great story to see ways that we can all come together right now. There is always room for all of us. Watch Chelsey carefully for a funny little trick she pulled. It sure made Jeanette and I laugh! Did it make you giggle?

Next week we will kick off our summer reading program for 2020! While we will miss having all the kids AT the library for programs, we are excited to have fun summer activities planned for ourfavorite kids. Beginning Monday, June 29th at 12:00 pm we will have a story stroll set up in our front lawn for kids/families to enjoy. (Please practice social distancing while taking part in the stroll.) In addition to the story stroll, the library will have a weekly ISPY search in our window for kids to do from outside! We will also have our week 1 summer reading kit ready for pickup that day. Please call 507-346-2100 when you arrive and we will bring out your kit! The kit will have all the directions for our program, logs, and the first craft will be in there. Beginning on Mondays each week (for 4 weeks) there will be a new story stroll AND a new summer reading kit to pick up. Kits can be picked up any day of the week between 12-4 pm.
This year in addition to reading, some of the weekly activities that will count towards a prize bag will include taking part in our I-SPY, scavenger hunts, craft projects, doing the story stroll, and listening to our online story time. One kit per child, please. Kids can earn “brag tags” and those can be picked up weekly when you get your new kit by calling the library or you can wait until the end and get them all at once. We are flexible…and fun! If you plan on having your child/children participate in the program PLEASE email me at email@example.com or send me a message on on the Library FB page so we can get an idea of how many kits to get ready. The program will run through July 31st when logs are due. Prize bags can be picked up on or after August 5th. Hope to hear from you!

We are excited to announce that the week of June 29th we will begin to allow patrons with an appointment to come into the library to browse and checkout materials. This week (June 22-26) we will continue as we have been, with curbside and sign up for computer use. We are working hard at making the library a safe place for staff and patrons! You will notice some differences inside as we have plexiglass up at the front desk and will be routing foot traffic, and will have floor markings for social distancing. We are asking patrons to grab what they need and checkout. There is a 30 minute time limit for appointments. We will also be offering computer time during the same time, and that must also be signed up for. Please look at the handout below to see the days and times we will be allowing people in the library, when we will be continuing curbside, and more. We will be cleaning and disinfecting between sessions. THERE ARE CHANGES to curbside-we will no longer have Friday pickup. Computer use days will change to Monday’s and Wednesday’s and lessen to 30 minute slots to coincide with checkout days/times. You must call for an appointment for any service that will bring you into the library. We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins. We are excited to see you! Call 507-346-2100 with any questions!
