Library Survey

The Stromsburg Public Library is seeking input from all members within our service area for what you envision for the completion of the library basement. Currently, the basement is approximately 2,900 SF of unfinished and unused space and has limitless possibilities. The project would be completed with donations, grants, and fundraising to complete the space for public use.  Survey will close September 23, 2022.

Please click the link below to take the survey or stop by the library for a paper survey. Thank you for your input.

Library News 1-14-21

I would like to introduce our new assistant to you – SunniJo Cooper. Some of you may remember her as SunniJo Johnson, daughter of Bob and Jodi. Sunni and her husband, Ryan, moved to Stromsburg in August and are remodeling a house to live in. They have two children, a boy and a girl who are in 5th and 3rd grades, respectively.  Welcome, Sunni!

We will be leaving the Christmas novellas up for a couple more weeks in case you just didn’t have time to read them during the holiday season. Then they will head back to the basement until November. If you are ever in need of a Christmas novella throughout the year, just ask us and we will be happy to retrieve one for you.

We are starting Preschool Story Time again this month. We will be meeting January 20 and 21 at 10:30 am. We are reading books about forest animals and studying the tracks they make.

Our new book shelf is looking pretty full. We have the first two books in a new series by Barbara Taylor Bradford available as well as books by popular authors like Janet Evanovich, Lee Child, Susan Wiggs and more. Stop in and see what’s new!
