Ander and Blayze Dragon are working on their own concept of the Library renovation.  Of course, being Dragons, they are working with legos instead of bricks and mortar. 

Word is that the renovation will begin before the end of the year Unfortunately, there still is not enough money to pay for the furnishings once the building is repaired and renovated.  Anyone who donates will get their name on the Donation Wall (and can also have the name of a loved one, business, organization, etc., listed on the Donation Wall).

If you want to help the Library Dragons raise money for the renovation, this is how you can do it:

Online:      follow the fundraiser link

Write a check made out to:  LACF  (Lismore Area Community Foundation, our fiscal agent)

Mail to or stop in at:  
Adrian Branch Library
214 Maine Avenue
PO Box 39
Adrian, MN   56110

Please help us reach our goal of $80,000.  As of October 20, 2016, we are at $33,500.  We appreciate any and all donations.  Thank you!

IT IS PUMPKIN TIME! September 12, 2016

The Library Dragons planted too many pumpkins (as if that could be possible!). Now they have to decide what to do with them!

This is a special shout-out and homage to Librarian Marilyn Daub of the Wabasso Library – she inspired the Dragons. Thanks, Marilyn!

OPERATION LABOR DAY! August 25, 2016


Donations are almost at $17,000.  The Library Dragons are hoping that the renovation fund can reach $20,000 by the end of Labor Day, September 5, 2016.  Can you help? Donations can be made online by going to the fundraiser link on the Adrian Branch Library webpage:

Anyone who donates will get his/her name in our donator's book, and will also get their name etched into a display at the library (or we can add the name of a loved one, or a tribute, or your business, etc.).

You can also donate by sending a check (made out to: LACF) to the Adrian Branch Library:
Adrian Branch Library
214 Maine Avenue
PO Box 39
Adrian, MN   56110

Or by dropping off your donation at the library, at the Adrian State Bank, or at the State Bank of Lismore.

(To be honest – there are some naysayers that are convinced we cannot reach our goal of $80,000.  Well, they don’t know our Dragons, do they? Where there is a will, there is a way! Go, Dragons!)
