Computer tutoring at the library
Join us for one-on-one computer instruction. If you need help getting started with computers in general or need to learn about a particular program, we would be glad to help you. You name the topic, and we’ll work together on one of our computers.
Our volunteer tutor is available on the third Wednesday of the month from 3-6 pm. An appointment is strongly suggested. Please contact the library at 507-744-3977 or email Marguerite Moran to schedule your session.

FOOD FOR FINES
HELD OVER FOR A SECOND WEEK!
November 28 – December 9
It’s time once again for that magical week when your fines can be forgiven at the same time as you do a good deed. The Lonsdale Public Library is again offering our semi-annual week-long “Food for Fines” event. During the week of November 28 – December 2 support the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf by donating items or money at the library and have your fines forgiven up to $10 per card. Non-perishable foods and personal care items welcomed, only non-expired items please.
Please note that we can only waive late fees, not lost item fees, and only for fines imposed by Lonsdale Public Library. Any size donation is welcome and will help your friends and neighbors!
Halloween is just around the corner. Join us on Friday, October 27th at the library for our annual spooky celebration.
