Summer Reading Program

We will start the summer reading program off with registration the week of June 7. On June 16th, we will be having Curtis Allan Hed's Magic Show at the Ortonville Public Library at 1:00 p.m. This is open to everyone, not just summer reading participants. We also are asking that an adult accompanies the child/ren to the program. The reason is we are trying to promote more family activities. Many of you work, so if a grandparent or someone else can come along that would be great. First program will be 23rd. 1st - 4th grade will meet at 1:00 p.m.; preschool - kindergarten will meet at 2:30 p.m. and 5th - 12th grade (teens) will meet at 4:00 p.m. This year's theme is Make a Splash @ Your Library! We have lots of fun water projects; pirate projects, etc. Lots of prizes will be available again for you to purchase with your library dollars. The programs will be held every Wednesday with the last program being on July 28th.

World War II

If you click on the website noted, there is a slideshow of WW II which I think you will find very interesting. this following our great bus tour to the exhibit of Minnesota's Greatest Generation in St. Paul. Please watch the slideshow.

Jill Kalz visit

Jill Kalz visited our library on Saturday, May 1st. We had about 15 people in attendance. The presentation was wonderful! Her book "Farmer Cap" was a big hit with young and old alike.

Bus Trip to MN History Center

We still have room on the buses for the MN History Center Trip. The bus ride and ticket into the exhibit is free to you. All you are responsible for is your meals. There is over 6,000 square feet of exhibits of World War II, The Depression and The Boom Years. We will have a guided tour of the exhibit as well as looking on your own. Call the library and sign up today. The trip is open to anyone who wants to go. 320-839-2494 or 320-748-7332.
