From April 17 through May 15, join Winona Public Library and Happy Dancing Turtle for a scavenger hunt in Nature! Can you find all 24 items on the Spring Bingo Card for a chance to win the grand prize? To dive deeper into the fun, use resources from the library to help you identify the things you find. All ages welcome! To register, visit bit.ly/BingoSHReg.
When you find something in nature that's on the card, snap a pic. When you get a bingo, submit your pics for a prize. The more Bingos you find, the more chances you'll get to win a bigger prize! Photos must be submitted by May 15.

WPL Makerspace Series: Come Code with Us!

Join WPL Youth Services for four coding challenges in May! Programs are open to youth ages 9-15. You’ll learn how to program a Sphero BOLT robot and create original music with Osmo Coding Jam.

This program occurs over four sessions. You will build your skills at each session, and you’re encouraged to attend all four if possible. Programs will be held at the library.

Program dates are as follows:

♦  Tuesdays and Fridays May 4, 7, 18, and 21 5-6 p.m. (after the library closes)

Youth can attend alone or with an adult. Masks and distancing are required so everyone stays safe, and registration will be limited to ensure there is ample space to spread out.
