Robey Memorial Library to host Grand Re-Opening Open House September 13

Following completion of its expansion project, Robey Memorial Library will hold a Grand Re-Opening Dedication and Open House Saturday, September 13 from 2-4 p.m. The Library invites all community members to take part in the celebration activities at 401 First Avenue NW location in Waukon.
The library expansion more than doubled the size of the library to add space for books, more computer stations, small study rooms, and a new community room.
Celebration events include a dedication ceremony at 2 p.m.; library tours; room naming contest; silent auction; a "make & take" activity for kids; special displays; photo presentation; and refreshments.
Leading up to the Grand Re-Opening, Robey Memorial Library will be accepting bids on silent auction items, with all proceeds benefiting either Robey Memorial Library or the Robey Memorial Library Foundation. Auction items include quilts, gift baskets, massage gift certificates, a wooden sculpture, antique books, author-signed books by Minnesota author Mary Logue, a CD/DVD storage unit, and a card catalog. Bids will be accepted up until Saturday, September 13 at 3:30 p.m., and items will be awarded to the highest bidder at that time. Bidding numbers may be picked up at the Robey Memorial Library front desk.
The Library will also be holding a Fine Amnesty Week the week leading up to that Grand Re-Opening. Patrons are invited to stop in anytime during the week of September 8-13 to have their fines on overdue library items forgiven. This excludes any fines incurred for lost or damaged materials.
