Stump the Librarian

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


Reading Charts & Bingo Cards

Do you still have reading sticker charts or Bingo cards from the Summer Reading Program? It's never too late to turn these in for prizes. If you did all eight Bingo cards, be sure to stop in to pick up a free book.

Although the ice cream card program is finished for the summer, 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, please follow the Mitchell Public Library Facebook Page.
