We Are Thankful For You!

We've already seen a few snowflakes stopping by to say hellp, so November would be a perfect time to drop in at SPL. Work on your novel for National Novel Writing Month, check out some soup or chili recipes to warm up your insides, or bring some friends or family in to work on a puzzle, or play some games. It's also Native American Heritage Month, and it would be a great time to check out our Iowa history collection and marvel at the rich Native American history we have in our great state. We are thankful to see all of you coming through our door. Although the days are getting shorter and the night are getting colder, Spencer Public Library will continue to bring exciting and fun programs to our public.Thank you for supporting your library.
