reading program–there’s something for all ages during this year’s Winsted Library Summer Reading Program!
To get a summer reading log for the Summer Reading Club (ages 5-12) or the Choose Your Own Adventure (ages 13+) , or to register for any of these programs, please stop by the Winsted Library, or give us a call at (320) 485-3909.
The winter storm is getting worse, so we’re headed home at 5pm today.
Even 4WD is no match for this mess!
If you’re out of books, and can’t make it in today (or tomorrow), remember you can go to pioneerland.overdrive.com to get an eBook or eAudio to tide you over until Mother Nature decides to ease up a bit.
Stay safe, everyone!
Are you wishing you could go back in time?
Come join us on Wednesday, January 31st for a bus trip down to the Old Log Theatre and Doo-Wop your day away!
Your trip back to the ’60’s is free–all you have to do is bring a lunch.
Take a trip to Springfield and meet Denny and the Dreamers, a fledgling doo-wop singing group preparing to enter the Big Whopper Radio contest to realize their dreams of making it to the big time! Trouble comes in the form of Lois, who arrives to put some polish on the boys. Denny falls in love, Wally falls in line, Eugene falls apart, and along comes handsome heartthrob Skip to send the whole situation spinning.
Hear hit songs like: Fools Fall in Love, Tears on My Pillow, Runaround Sue, Earth Angel, Stay, Unchained Melody, and of course, Life Could Be a Dream. Winner of the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Best Musical Award, Life Could Be a Dream will leave you laughing, singing, and cheering!
Winsted has 4 spots left, so don’t wait–call us today at 320-485-3909 to reserve your seat. The bus leaves from Hutchinson at 10:45am or Glencoe at 11:30am, and returns around 5:00pm. Please arrive 15 minutes early for check in and boarding.

Beginning in October, the McLeod County Historical Society and Museum is happy to announce a cooperative program series between the McLeod County Public Libraries and the McLeod County Historical Society and Museum. Each of 3 classes in this series will focus on topics and current methods in genealogy history research and how you can get the best results and find local resources to aid you in your search. The Museum has brought together a team of local genealogists who have spent decades doing their own family history research.
