Book Group

Have you been thinking about joining a book group? Our group is open to all! We have excellent discussions of a wide variety of books chosen by the group. And you never have to buy them, just borrow from the library.

Join us via Zoom at 6:00 on Thursday, April 4th to discuss 1491: New Revelations of the Americas before Columbus by Charles C. Mann. Contact the library to order a book and get a link to the Zoom.

Our book sale is coming up soon.  Mark your calendar!

Escape the Volcano!

What: Escape room
Who: Adults and teens 14+
Where: Lonsdale Public Library
When: Thursday, December 28-Saturday, December 30

You are having a great time on your Uncle Bob’s private tropical island until the volcano starts rumbling.  You have to escape!  But Bob left, and he forgot to tell you where he keeps the only key to the speedboat.  Can you locate the key before it’s too late?

Unlike other escape rooms, ours is completely free!  Use your wits to solve a series of puzzles as a team.  No experience or outside expertise required.  We will register up to 5 people per session.  Please call the library at 507-744-3977 or email to pre-register.
