The Library Board will have a work session on Wednesday, August 29 from 6-9pm. If you are interested in participating in this strategic planning session, we would be glad to have you.
We are doing some strategic planning to make sure we continue to meet community needs. To that end, we have a brief survey we would like you to fill out. Please contribute if you use the library or if you don’t use the library. We are interested in hearing from all adults in Lonsdale and the surrounding area. Tell your friends!
We wouldn’t ask you to do this for free. We will be having a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Mackenthun’s Fine Foods.
If you prefer a physical survey, you can pick one up at the library or City Hall. Please complete or return by August 3rd.
The June meeting of the Lonsdale Public Library Board has been changed to Wednesday, June 27th at 6:30 pm. All meetings are open to the public.

Do you think an egg can bounce? Your library staff investigated a book called How To Make a Bouncing Egg by Jennifer L. Marks. It says that if you leave an egg in vinegar for three days, the shell will dissolve but the membrane will thicken enough that the egg will bounce if dropped from an inch or two high.
As you can see, the shell does dissolve.
And by day three and four, the egg does become rubbery.
For the video with results, you will have to check out our Facebook page.
If you have kids, please take our brief survey about childrens’ programs at the library. We would love to have your input.
