It's All Happening in June in Long Prairie!

Summer is almost here and it's time to get out and have some fun! If you find yourself in Long Prairie in June, fun will be just around the corner almost anywhere you look.

Prairie Fest takes place during Father's Day weekend: there are rides, grandstand events, a parade, and lots of great food. For more information visit http://prairiefest.net/. The Friends of the Library are holding their book sale during Prairie Fest. Stop by the Pet Vet (across the street from the library) for some super great deals! The sale runs Thursday and Friday, June 13-14, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 15, 9:00 - 12:00 noon.
