Connecting Military Families

Welcome to a new area of the library focused on Connecting Military Families.

A recording and listening station is available for military families to record stories and messages to send to loved ones deployed for service, as well as listen to messages sent from family members who are deployed.  Please call Youth Services at 507-452-4592 to make an appointment to use the station.

Youth Services also has an area that offers books and other information about being a military family.  The purpose of this area is to help families, especially children, deal with separation from a deployed parent, the fears that go with that and other separation issues that many, even non-military, families often deal with (travel, death, divorce, etc.).
