Get Your Gardening Ideas at the Library!

We’ve received a donation of over 2 dozen terrific gardening books — come in and take a look, and register for our drawing — we’ll be giving away 2 garden journals on May 1st.  One entry per Library visit, please.


April is Money Smart Month!

Taxes are done (well, hopefully) and we’re finally shaking off the winter.  Give your kids the skills to be responsible savers and spenders!  Join us on Tue. & Thur. April 15th & 17th at 6:30 at the Library as our partner Horizon Bank gives you great ideas to help your kids!  Refreshments will be served at these FREE events!


AND April is National Poetry Month!

Let’s have some fun!  Come to our first-ever POETRY SLAM on Wed. April 30th at 6 pm.  Bring your own or your favorite writer’s poetry!

And we’ll get a little silly.  We’ll also devote part of the evening to Bad Poetry.  Bring your favorite lame poems and we’ll share a laugh!


Land O’ Lakes Art Alliance Returns for Display during April

LOLAA is back with a display of works by local amateur artists and photographers, throughout April 2nd.  Drop by and have a look!

Legos Wanted!

Do you have old Legos you’re not using?  We want to start a Lego Club for Afterschool, and will take donations of old Legos.  Contact the Library for more information.


Overdrive E-Books!

You can now link to Overdrive, one of the nation’s largest e-book providers.  Click on the link and follow the instructions; find ‘Wanatah Public Library’ on the list, and when prompted, enter your library card number as a 5-digit number: for example, 0xxxx (don’t include the ‘P’).  You can download books and audio files either to your desktop or your portable device.

We’ll be happy to help you navigate the Overdrive system — just give us a call or come in, and we’ll work to make sure your e-book experience is a great one!
