Putting Yourself First: A Special Video for Teenagers

August 12th

Teens age 13 through 18 have a unique chance to view a video from Winona County Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention about putting yourself before alcohol and nicotine. This video will provide you with the tools to choose sober living with a special message from NFL running back, Donald Brown, about how he put himself over substance use. The video will be posted on the Winona Public Library's social media and website on August 12th and is viewable whenever is convenient for you.

Summer Reading Prize Distribution

Dig Deeper!
Dig Deeper!

Summer Reading prize distribution is fast-approaching, and we have some great prizes to give out this year! We have small pizzas from Toppers, custard from Culver's, cheeseburgers from McDonald's, ice cream from McDonald's, and a free book to give you! Because the library's building is currently not open to the public, we'll be doing distribution outside the library in the learning plaza from 9 AM to 12 PM on the dates listed below. Please try to come on the day that coincides with the first letter of your last name, but if you can't, feel free to come on a different day. The time frame is drop-in, and we will not run out of prizes.

Monday, August 10: A through E
Tuesday, August 11: F through K
Wednesday, August 12: L through P
Thursday, August 13: R through Z

We have enough prizes for everyone, so we will absolutely not run out by the end of the alphabet. If you are unable to claim your prizes during those times, please reach out to winonapl@selco.info or 507-452-4592, and we'll work with you on a different pickup time.
