It's back to school time!

Summer vacation is rapidly coming to a close, and before we know it the school year will be underway.

It's time to put away the water wings and the t-ball equipment, and turn our attention back to academics.

That's not to say students can't continue reading fun books like the first one highlighted below, but parents will be getting a bit more serious about what's best for their children intellectually. That's where the second book highlighted below comes in.

The staff at Detroit Lakes Library hopes everyone has a fun and productive school year!.
