Join us this Saturday, December 1st, 2012 at 11 a.m. for a
OLD FASHION CHRISTMAS STORY TIME at the Wabasha Public Library. Come make a ornament for the community Christmas Tree, enjoy stories and a special visitor.
We have a new tab at the top of this page called “New Book Arrivals”. Everytime we enter a new book, it shows up in a list of new books when you click on the New Book Arrivals tab. When you click on it, you may notice a long list of children’s books, or just adult fiction, and that is because we enter books all at once but separately depending on their location due to cataloging procedures. So, just scroll down to find your favorite category of books. It’s all there! All our brand new books fresh on the new book shelves and you can request/put on hold if they are currently checked out to someone else. If it is available, just stop in to go to the shelf to get it.
