Book BINGO is back! Sign up for our program begins December 1, 2023. Call Wolfner to sign up! We will be using Beanstack for tracking reading. Here is the link for Beanstack- https://wolfpac.beanstack.org/reader365.

Remember you need to read five books to complete a Bingo. You just have to pick one out of each column. Your reading BINGO does not have to be a straight line!

A large print card or braille version of the BINGO card can be mailed to you upon request. The large print card is also available on our website. Need help finding a title? Reader advisors are standing by to assist!

The program will start on January 1, 2024 and conclude on February 29, 2024. Winners will be announced on March 8, 2024. Questions? Call Jami at 573-522-2768.






The latest Wolfie’s Mail and Make project has been sent out for November and December 2023.  This time, our project involves making a clay ornament using items found in nature.

You might think nature hikes are only an event for the warmer seasons, but there is still much to see on crisp fall days.  Stop to gather up an interesting leaf or rock, an acorn cap or walnut shell, seed pods, bark, or any other textured items that spark your imagination. 

A how-to video for this Mail and Make project is available at the following link: How To Make Wolfie's Nature Print Ornament.

As always, we would love to see pictures of your finished projects.  Photos should be of the project only, to protect the safety of our patrons.  Please email your Mail and Make photos to [email protected].

The Mail and Make program is open to youth and adults with an intellectual disability. Participants must be registered patrons of Wolfner Library.  To become a library patron, go to the Apply for Services page for access to the eligibility requirements and application.

Signup for Mail and Make may be found at the following link: Wolfie's Mail and Make Registration Form.
