    • Back to School


      After a busy Summer Reading season, we’re getting back in the groove of yet another school year! The children’s department—as always—is here for any of your school needs. We would like to remind busparents and   caregivers that if their student does not live in Monticello but attends a Twin Lakes school, the student is eligible for a library card that will be active for the duration of the school year. TL teachers are also   eligible for this card if they don’t live in the area. You will still need to show us proof of address.

      We’ll be kicking off the fall programming season with a celebration of everyone’s favorite magical creature: the unicorn! We’re hosting a Unicorn Party on Wednesday, August 14 at 3:30. Stop by and see what colorful activities we have going on! We will also have many adorable, brand-new unicorn picture books available for checkout. Another big program we’re looking forward to is a visit from Brian of Pretty Funny Balloons. He is a professional balloon artist who will be in the children’s room after school on Wednesday, September 4 at 3:30. Not only will he give a demonstration of his super-cool job,  but each child will get to take home a balloon he makes especially for them!

      For the little ones who have siblings going back to school (or for any little ones who just want to come hang out with us) we will once again be having Dog Days Storytime outside on the patio the last three Wednesdays in August at 10am for ages birth to 5 years.
      For the teens, regular programs are always at 3:30. Gamer Tuesday is every week in the conference room, and we can’t wait to bust out the new equipment we got, including a VR,  Switch, and new games! Learn new cooking skills two Wednesdays a month in Cooking with Amanda. Teen Thursday, which features a mix of crafts, games, snacks, and sometimes a movie, is also every week in the program room. The Teen Back to School Bash is Thursday, August 15.

       For more information on resources for students and teachers, contact the Children's Department at 574-583-2665 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
