Win a Mackenthun’s gift card!

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.


Beanie Babies!

You know you can check out books at the library.  You know you can check out movies at the library.  You know you can check out magazines at the library.  You know you can check out e-books at the library.  But now you can also check out Beanie Babies at the library!  They were so excited that they ran all over the library having fun.

Celebrating our birthday!


Doing a puzzle!

Reading a book together!

They can’t wait to visit your house and see what kind of adventures you can have together.  Stop by and check one out!

Story room

Meet our new(ly designated) story room and study space.  Formerly a seldom-used small meeting room, the story room has been re-envisioned as a fun place to relax and play or buckle down and study–your choice!

  • Join us here for story times Tuesday evenings and Friday mornings.
  • Kids and families can play and relax here anytime the door is open.
  • If you want a quiet space to study or meet, you can sign up at the library on a first-come, first-served basis.
