New Prague Community Band

Join us as we finish our summer reading program with a celebration of the community.  This event is for everyone!  You don’t have to have been part of summer reading.  You don’t have to be a kid or have a kid.  We will have free ice cream and music for everyone!

Please bring your own chair or blanket.

COVID-19 tests available

You can now pick up a rapid COVID-19 test at the library!  The iHealth rapid antigen test is FREE. It detects proteins from the virus that causes COVID-19.

To help keep our community healthy and slow the spread of COVID-19, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has partnered with local community-based organizations to provide free at-home rapid tests to low income Minnesotans.

The Minnesota Department of Health recommends testing for the following reasons:

  • You are feeling symptoms of COVID-19.
  • You had a close contact with someone who has COVID-19.
  • You are testing before going to a large gathering.
  • Even with a negative rapid test result, someone who has symptoms should take a PCR COVID-19 test and should not return to regular activity until symptoms have improved and they have been fever-free for 24 hours. If you test positive or have symptoms, stay home and away from others. Follow the public health guidance about what to do if you are sick .

The test kits expire July 1, 2022.
Tests will be distributed while supplies last.

Coffee and Conversation

Coffee and Conversation

Second and fourth Wednesday of each month
11 am – 1 pm

Starting in September, drop in to the library for a hot beverage and a chance to meet new friends or visit old ones.  Bring your knitting or your book, a board game or an article you want to talk about.  We will provide the coffee and tea, you provide your own lunch or a treat to share.

Does this all sound a little vague?  Good.  This will be your group, and we want you to shape it.  Everyone is welcome!
