Welcome to the Aplington Public Library!
Up until Valentine's Day, gift-wrapped books awaited selection to become someone's "blind" book date. Those participating were asked to rate their book date by completing a form. These forms were than submitted in a drawing. This year Deb Prier (pictured) was the winner of the drawing and received a box of chocolate hearts for her participation. Deb blind book date was After The Leaves Falls by Nicole Baart. "Intrigued" was Deb’s response as to her first impression of the book and Deb rated the date with her book as "better than expected". Thanks to all those who took part in this contest. We hope you enjoyed your "blind dates"!
Survey Time: Every few years feedback from YOU about our library and its services is helpful and appreciated. Surveys have been formulated for this purpose. Please stop by to complete one or do so on-line by clicking the survey tab on the top of this page. Thank you!
