Monthly Mystery Bags

Wondering what to read next? Check out our monthly mystery bags for adults! Mystery bags have a new theme every month and contain a surprise selection of 4-5 library books and an adult craft. Return the books to the library when you're done with them - keep the other goodies!

The June 2022 theme is "Adventure Awaits!". The mystery bags will include a selection of novels about travel and adventure. The craft is a paper butterfly shadow box.

Registration for the May mystery bags opens May 23rd, at 9:00 a.m. Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag. Ages 18+
