Are you going to the Minnesota State Fair?
If you have a public library card, you can get a discount on your admission ticket on Wednesday, August 29th for the fair’s annual Read & Ride Day!

As part of the celebration, library ambassadors from all over the state host a Read & Ride Day Library event in Dan Patch Park (in front of the Grand Stand), and there are free family activities throughout the park from 9am-5pm. There will also be deals on merchandise and food for all fair guests, and all-day specials will be offered on Mighty Midway and Kidway rides & games.
Where can summer reading take you?
From Storytime in the Park to our
Summer Reading Club to our
Choose Your Own Adventure
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!
