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 theme is "Distant Lands" and includes books about travel, adventure, and faraway places.

The craft kit is a "Lord of the Rings" inspired hobbit door wreath.

Registration for the June mystery bag opens May 30th. Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag. Ages 18+
