Pajama Time “Achoo! Storytime” will be held Thursday, Feb. 5 at 6:30-7pm instead of this Thursday, Jan. 29. This time of year we all know someone who isn’t feeling well. This storytime will remind us to wash our hands and take care of each other when we aren’t feeling well.
Storytimes are an excellent opportunity for families to reconnect at the end of a busy day. Toddlers, preschoolers, and their families are invited to join Miss Meg for stories and songs. Kiddos are invited to wear their jammies or regular clothes whichever is easiest for Mom and Dad or Grandma and Grandpa.
Registration is now open for Winter Reading Bingo! Kids are invited to register and pickup a bingo card from the library front desk.

For every child who completes a Winter Reading Bingo card, an anonymous donor will give a can of soup to the Plainview-Elgin Area Food Shelf. Reading for a reason!

Local author, Amanda Farmer, will be signing books at the Plainview Library on Saturday, December 6th from 9am until noon and at the Jon Hassler Theater bookstore from 5-8pm. Her first published memoir, If You Leave This Farm, is a story of family loyalty, finding one’s purpose, and the pursuit of dreams. Amanda worked on her family’s southeastern Minnesota farm until the age of twenty-nine. From there, she pursued a career as a Nurse Anesthetist, traveled the globe, and served others with her nursing skills. Hers is a tale of a family’s relationship that despite its profound flaws gave her the steadfast determination to chart her own path and make a difference in the world.
