Stephanie strives to have the course rejuvenate creativity in you! All students take home a Renegade Printer handout so they can continue printing at home (even with many household items we all have lying around!) No registration or fees are required. Ages 16 and up only please. We will allow attendees as space allows. Doors open at 5:45 pm.

Summer is a perfect time to read for pleasure, and the library has a great music-inspired summer reading program called Libraries Rock! to encourage you in your reading endeavors. Registration begins on May 29 , and the program runs June 11-August 4 for eight weeks of reading fun! Stop by either location to sign up and pick up your reading logs. Read for two hours each week for a chance to win a grand prize, plus engage in classes, concert, and other shows that entertain and educate. See you this summer!

Broken Wheel, Iowa, has never seen anyone like Sara, who traveled all the way from Sweden just to meet her pen pal, Amy. When she arrives, however, she finds that Amy's funeral has just ended. Luckily, the townspeople are happy to look after their bewildered tourist—even if they don't understand her peculiar need for books.
