As a preview for our Summer Reading Program, we are having a special story time and prize giveaway on Saturday, May 18th at 11AM.

"It's Showtime at the Library!!" is the theme for this summer, and you can take this opportunity to visit and stock up on books and get info for the summer program, which begins on Monday, June 3rd.

The first 12 kids to arrive will receive a brand new harmonica (up to 2 per family with multiple children), which have been donated by our friends the Everett Smithson Band.

We will read "Lentil" by Robert McCloskey and "Apt. 3" by Ezra Jack Keats, hear some harmonica music from the internet and take our first lesson on playing a "mouth harp."

Call us at 218-639-2347 or email us at wadena-rp@krls.org for more information.
