Adult Programs

***UPDATE: There are no in person programs during January 2022.***

The Jackson County Library System is starting something new! There will be two monthly programs for adults at each of the three libraries.

On the first Wednesday of the month, each library will host a variety of activities including fascinating speakers and crafts. The events will be in the Jackson Library at 12 PM, the Lakefield Library at 2 PM, and the Heron Lake Library at 5:30 PM.

Monthly Movie Days have also been added as our second monthly adult programs. Each month the libraries will show an afternoon movie for adults on the big screens in their meeting rooms. In Jackson and Lakefield, the movie will be on the third Friday of the month at 1 PM and in Heron Lake it will be on the fourth Friday of the month at 1 PM. To find out what movie is showing, check out our event calendar or call your library for more information.
