Celebrate 60!

We are excited to announce that we are celebrating 60 years of the Lindsborg Community Library! You are invited to come explore our 2020 renovations, browse our book sale, and join our birthday party activities for all ages.

Birthday Party

The Library first opened doors to the community on June 2, 1960; during your visit, learn more about our history by reading through one of our Celebrate Sixty! Commemorative Booklet. Our 60th Birthday reception table will have commemorative booklets available for freewill donations as well as Library T-Shirts, $10 each.  Additional party activities will be offered throughout the week: Check here for our current list of events!

Health Measures

The City of Lindsborg currently has a mask ordinance in place; while there are exemptions for children 5 and younger as well as individuals with hearing difficulties or medical issues that prevent wearing a face covering, we ask that all others wear a mask during your library visit. If you forget your mask, we have disposable masks available for free at the front desk.

Multiple hand sanitizer dispensers are available throughout the Library for your use and our carpeting is 2 foot square tiles, which can be helpful to gauge social distancing of 6 feet (3 carpet tiles). By holding our 60th birthday celebrations throughout the entire week, we hope to have many participate and also stay within our local county health department’s guideline of less than 45 people gathered at a time.

Come-and-Go to Celebrate All Week Long!

More details will be coming soon so be sure to check back here for further updates about our celebration as we come closer to time. Thanks for your continued support of our local library!
