Wondering what to read next? Check out our monthly mystery bags for adults!
Mystery bags have a different theme every month and contain a surprise selection of 4-5 books and movies, and an adult craft. Return the books and movies when you're done with them - keep the craft!
October's theme is "Thrills & Chills". The October bag will include a selection of thrillers, mysteries, and slightly spooky (not scary!) books just in time for Halloween. The craft is a decorative lace doily spiderweb. Registration opens September 20th. Please call the library at 641-792-4108 to register.
