You may have noticed that some work is being done on the library roof this week. We are still open normal hours while this work is being done. Thank you for your patience during this project.
The above photos are from our Super Saturday series from the last six months. We’ve been having so much fun! Super Saturday is the second Saturday of every month, and features a story time followed by special guests and activities. Special guests so far have included the Zumbrota Fire Department, Quarry Hill Nature Center, Santa Claus, Jake McBroom, and our READ dogs Annie and Midnight. The next Super Saturday will be April 11 at 10am. The theme will be LEGO Fun and both Midnight and Annie will be available to listen to kids read to them. Much, much thanks to our special guests for making Super Saturdays so super!
10 am, Sat, May 14
This month’s Super Saturday program is Creative Cooking! Come and experience some fun cooking creation stations and practice sifting, mixing, slicing, measuring, and counting. Bonus: our good friend Midnight the dog will be on site for kids to spend some time reading with after the program!
The final event of this year’s Zumbrota Reads program is Monday, March 9 at 6:30pm. Community members who read this year’s book, My Antonia by Willa Cather, will gather at the library to discuss their impressions, questions, and reflections on the book. Copies of the book are still available for free at the library for a limited time. Anyone interested is encouraged to attend the book discussion, whether or not they have read or finished the book.
7:30pm, Friday, March 6- free showing of the film Sweet Land at the State Theatre
Join us for this year’s Zumbrota Reads film event! Sweet Land is the story of a feisty German mail-order bride who immigrates to rural Minnesota in the 1920s to marry a Norwegian farmer. Bureaucracy and prejudice cause major complications in this gentle story of love and immigration.
Admission to this event is free. The State Theatre is located at 96 E. 4th St. in Zumbrota.
