2020 We Are Thankful

Even in 2020, We are Thankful! However, instead of our usual soup & chili meal, we have chosen to celebrate by building our gratitude display at the Library and collecting non-perishable food items to benefit Lindsborg’s Dala Pantry.

We’ve started our gratitude display with a few of the many things we are thankful for at the Library: the more than 17,000 physical items currently available to check out, nearly 14,000 physical materials and more than 2,800 e-books checked out over the past year, continued Library services such as interlibrary loan, public computers, and free wifi as well as the new curbside and delivery services, and the many grant sponsors, donors, volunteers, partners, and patrons. We are thankful for Library Friends like you!

We are inviting you to add your thanksgivings to our display as well. There are blank leaves, pens, and tape available at the display ready for your next in-person visit. You can also drop a note in our book drop and our Librarians will add your thanks to our gratitude display for you.

To celebrate Thanksgiving & Christmas, we will be collecting non-perishable food items November 21 to December 21. All donated items will benefit Lindsborg’s Dala Pantry food bank. Any non-perishable food will be accepted; special requests from the Dala Pantry include canned meats like tuna, chicken & vienna sausages and canned pasta sauces such as alfredo, parmesan, and all types of spaghetti sauces.

Thanks for your continued support of our local library! We wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving!
