May 2024 Northwood Public Library News

Happy May! The end of the school year is quickly approaching and after that… Summer Reading! We want to give a huge thank you to those businesses that have already donated money to support our upcoming Summer Reading Program: Agri-Sales, Dewey Kruger Music, FSB, Knudtson Automotive, Northwood Dental, NSB, and Shade Tree Liquors. You all are wonderful and we are so greatful! If you’re interested in helping to fund the library’s Summer Reading Program stop on in to see us, call us at 324-1340, or email me at

We will continue to have Story Time on Friday mornings at 10:00. The dates for May are the 3rd, 10th, and 17th. Story Time is geared for toddler and preschool age, but babies are welcome too! It’s a fun time for kids to socialize together, learn about sitting quietly for a short story or two, have some fun coloring and playing with the library toys. Parents and caregivers can enjoy some chit chat too! Please pay attention to the library’s facebook page for more information.
The library has two different book clubs that participate in a monthly reading and discussion. If this is anything that sounds interesting to you, don’t hesitate to reach out at the library!
