Our first official Toddler Storytime was a hit! Ms. Penny and the kids had a great time.
Join us again on Wednesday, May 25th!
Enjoy our indoor amusement park where you can play mini-golf, toss a ball into a monster’s mouth, do some boo bowling or pin the alien in its spaceship!
And don’t forget the library, where we will have crafts for little and not-so-little kids, coloring and worksheets, a spooky photo backdrop, trivia for grown-ups and lots of yummy treats!
Our Food for Fines drive starts the day of the party and goes until Saturday, November 6th. Donate any unexpired non-perishable food, household item, or cash to the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf and we will waive up to $10 in late fees from our library.
Our prize this month is Ocean Prey by John Sandford. This 2021 novel mixes the long-running Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers series. When three members of the Coast Guard are murdered, it will take all the skills of these two investigators to find justice.
Beginning September 10th, storytimes will be held in the large meeting room. They are a great opportunity for pre-readers to enjoy a story or two, share songs or finger plays, do cool crafts and develop those pre-literacy skills. Not to mention a place for parents to relax and meet.
We’re back online recommending books for all ages and interests. We will post a new video to our Facebook and YouTube pages the first and third Wednesdays of the month. If you have a few related books to recommend, we welcome guest stars!
It’s time to get the gang back together! We are currently selecting a day and time for our book group for grown-ups, so if you’re interested, please let us know when would work for you. We pick our next book as a group and tend to read widely, so get ready for a fun adventure.
A mad scientist lab, games, crafts, treats and more. Fun for the whole family!
Donate any unexpired food item(s) to the Lonsdale Area Food Shelf and we will waive up to $10 in late fees from our library per card.
We are accepting donations of good-quality recent books now. We need volunteers to plan, sort and to assist on the sale day. If you can do any of these, please talk to us.
Teens and adults will need to solve the murder of Mr. Boddy!
Our favorite reptile expert, Jim Gerholdt, is back with his turtle, lizard and snake friends. You may even get to pet a boa constrictor!
There will be two shows, 12:00 and 1:15 at Lonsdale Elementary School. You need to pre-register here for one session with Tri-City United Community Ed. There is no charge. You do not need to be signed up for the summer reading program. (But you should definitely come in and sign up to get more fun stuff.)
Our summer reading program kickoff cookout was a hit! Lots of families came by to enjoy free hot dogs, chips and lemonade and to sign up for summer reading. Big thanks to all our volunteers!
Don’t forget, you can still sign up at the library or online.
Thanks to Mackenthun’s for helping us out with the food!

Hot dogs are awesome, just like reading!
Picking up those week one packets.
We are starting our summer reading program this year with a cookout! Enjoy free hot dogs, chips and lemonade! Thanks to Mackenthun’s for helping us out with the food! We will serve until 1:30 or until the food runs out. We’ll play some outdoor games and kids 0-18 will have a chance to sign up for summer reading. Come one, come all! All ages.
Have a favorite cookie recipe you’d like to share? Drop it off at the library or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Looking for new cookie recipes to try? Stop by starting on Monday, November 24 and pick up a copy of the recipes contributed. We will also share here on the website.
Because you can never have too many Christmas cookies! (Just don’t eat them all in one sitting.)
Come to the library on Friday, October 30 or Saturday, October 31 to get your party in a bag! We’re sad that we won’t be able to offer our usual party, but instead, you can bring the fun home. Packets will include coloring pages, activity sheets, a recipe, a craft, a prize or two and a bag of candy! Choose pre-reader, reader or teen/tween.
This is it! Vote by Halloween to determine once and for all what is Lonsdale’s favorite candy. Vote here.
