Monthly Mystery Bags
Wondering what to read next? Check out our monthly mystery bags for adults! Mystery bags have a new theme every month and contain a surprise selection of 4-5 library books and an adult craft. Return the books to the library when you're done with them - keep the other goodies!
The October 2022 theme is "Thrills & Chills". The October bag will include a selection of thrillers, mysteries, and spooky books, just in time for Halloween.
The craft is a painted coffin candy box.
Registration for the October mystery bag opens September 26th. Call the library at 641-792-4108 or direct message us on Facebook to reserve your mystery bag. Ages 18+
