Stump the Librarian

Write three clues about a book you've read. If the librarian can't guess the exact title, you win a prize!  


Reading Charts

Do you still have reading sticker charts from the Summer Reading Program? It's never too late to turn these in for free books. (We also can give you a new chart if you like this challenge.) 

Although the summer ice cream card program, we continue to thank our ice cream sponsors: Main St. Mercantile, County Fair Food & Fuel, Dairy Queen, Zesto, and Cornerstone Too.

For more information about our programs (and for weather-related cancellations), please see the Mitchell Public Library Facebook Page.  

For additional questions, please contact Jean Patrick, Children's Services Librarian: 605-995-8480.
