Bring your kids to the library to take advantage of all these fun events. If they do not have a library card, this is a great opportunity to sign your family up for cards. Having a library card provides access to a world of educational learning and fun for your family at no cost. You need a library card to check items out, but you do not need a card to visit.

Vicky is a fleece to finish operation and grew her business out of a love for the animal. She will bring samples of her fleece. This program is free and open to everyone.

We are able to provide these workshops through a grant from the State Library of Iowa and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
