Join the staff and patrons of the Rice Lake Public Library on October 28 at 4 p.m. at Mommsen’s Pumpkin Patch and Apple Orchard for a story hour and spooky pumpkin painting party. Story time will take place in the outdoor pavilion, so dress warmly. If the weather is bad, the group will head to the second floor of the barn. Pumpkins and all painting supplies will be provided, as well as a small snack. Prepare to step into the spirit of fall. Questions about the program? Call 715-234-4861 or email [email protected].
Book Boxes are a fun, free box of titles and goodies that can be requested monthly by customers.

Fill in the review bookmarks in each book and request another one the following month.
