Gardening Ideas & Seed Swap

The Zumbrota Public Library will host a Gardening Ideas & Seed Swap on Monday, April 28 at 6:30pm.  This event will begin with a few short presentations to provide gardeners with some projects and resources for the 2014 growing season.  Following these presentations there will be a time for open discussion when participants can share tips and ideas with each other.  Anyone with extra seeds on hand is also invited to bring those along to trade with each other.  All experience levels welcome!

New Catalog

Starting April 1 we will have a new online catalog…so don’t be surprised if things look a little different when you go to look for an item!  The new catalog will have some new and different features than you’re used to.  Let us know if you need any help or have any questions with it!

Zumbrota Reads 2014- Events Week!

Events week has arrived for Zumbrota Reads 2014: To Kill a Mockingbird!  There will be a book discussion this Thursday at 6:30pm at the library.  Then Friday evening at 6:30pm meet us at the State Theatre for a dynamic presentation by the Diversity Council of Rochester, followed by a showing of the classic film To Kill a Mockingbird starring Gregory Peck.  All events are free of cost.  We still have several copies of the novel for anyone who needs one.  Please join us for events even if you have not read the book yet; we guarantee it will be an enlightening and enjoyable experience.

This project was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.  Additional funding was provided by a generous donation from Z-Theater.
