Things are really picking up around here with the impending return of Children’s and Adult programming! Our Adult programming will return on Tuesday, September 6th, with a very special session of our Long Overdue series.
We are excited to host the Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Clay and Yankton Counties as she provides the community with an overview of the work they are busy doing in our communities, and ways for you to be involved. Takes place in the Kozak Community Room at 7 pm.

Tug Collective arrives tomorrow, June 3rd, with their traveling project ‘Who Eats at Taco Bell?”. Gaelyn and Gustavo Aguilar, Co-Artistic Directors, will ceremoniously bike into town and make their way to the library, where they will set up their ‘Taco Encampment’.
During their stay, they will make tacos with people, prompt dialogue, exhibit interactive art, and invite innovative forms of engagement around the question: What is it going to take for us to truly live inter-culturally?
Join us, and the Tug Collective, for Tacos and conversation Saturday morning at the Vermillion Area Farmer’s Market, at the Platz, 9 – 12.
We will follow that up with a bike jaunt out to Spirit Mound, to visit this locally infamous spot along the Lewis & Clark Trail. We will depart from the Library at 2 pm. All are welcome!
The Library will be closed all day on Sunday, May 29th and Monday, May 30th, in observance of Memorial Day.
In addition, we will now be closed every Sunday through Labor Day.
Happy Summer, Vermillionaires!
