Ah, libraries. There is truly something so magical about going to a place filled with rows upon rows of books waiting to be read. 

When walking into a library, everyone knows they are going to be welcomed by fellow readers with a warmth that can be described as a gooey chocolate chip cookie handcrafted with love. For readers and even non-readers, it can feel like home.

Sometimes though, with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, people can forget to visit and explore everything local libraries offer. 

So this week’s “Your Question Answered” is to remind people of all the exciting things that can take place at the Red Wing and Ellsworth libraries.

One must remember that although each new book is an adventure in and of itself, libraries also hold special events to bring more excitement to their communities.
