Big thanks to the Lonsdale Snowizards Snowmobile Club for their generous donation to our children’s programming. We will soon have a new kids’ size craft table and chairs to enhance our storytimes, hands-on science and other fun activities for young people. Also, keep your eyes peeled for upcoming movie programs, since the Snowizards sponsored a public performance license, alllowing us to legally show all sorts of movies for kids and adults, alike!
It’s that time of year again. Share the holiday spirit by donating to the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf. Bring in non-perishable, unexpired food, household or personal care items such a toilet paper or deoderant, or cash to the Lonsdale Public Library. We will waive up to $10 in late fees from our library per card for any size donation. Everybody wins!
