Reading in the Park

This summer the Ortonville Public Library will be doing a Storytime in Park. We will be at Lakeside Park each Tuesday, starting on June 10th at 10 a.m. for a storytime. There will not be activities, just a story time. This is open to anyone who wants to come and listen to children's stories. The storytime will last about 45 minutes. We will do this every Tuesday through August 19th. So bring your blankets and lawn chairs, get comfortable, sit back and enjoy some stories!


The Ortonville Public Library will be having a new program this year called B.O.O.K., Building Opportunities for Outstanding Kids. This program will pair up first through 6th graders with mentors who are ninth grade and older. They will meet at their convenience for one hour a week to do reading and writing activities to help them over the summer months. This program will also start the week of June 9th and run until August 1st. If anyone is interested in being a mentor, please contact the library at 320-839-2494.
