Annual Book Sale

This weekend is Covered Bridge Festival in Zumbrota which also means the annual book sale at the library.  The book sale will be from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm on Saturday, June 21 in the library parking lot.  We’ve been collecting book donations all year in preparation for this sale, so we’ll have a diverse selection for you to choose from.  Prices are also enticingly low, and all funds go to support your local library.

Be sure to put the library book sale on your festival “to do” list, and stop by on your way to or from the park.  We’ll see you on Saturday!

Disc golf sets available for check out

  Now that spring is slowly creeping in, residents of Zumbrota might consider stepping outside and trying out the new disc golf course at the Covered Bridge Park.  The new course, which consists of a series of metal baskets designed for catching discs thrown from varying distances, was recently created and installed by Jim Perra and the Zumbrota Park Board.  The #1 tee for the disc golf course can be found near the band shelter. 

  Sets of discs, along with handy carrying cases, are available for check out at the Zumbrota Public Library.  The disc sets, which were donated to the library by Louis Banitt, each include one driver, one mid-range, and one putter.  Disc golf is a leisurely, enjoyable game that does not require previous experience or skill.  It can be played solo, with a group of friends, or as a family.

  Take advantage of the sunny weather and check out some discs at the library today.
