FORT RIPLEY — The book exchange library in St. Mathias Township, 7015 County Highway 2, Fort Ripley, will be closing for the season.

The last day open will be Oct. 27. It means thousands of books, many puzzles, games, DVDs and CDs are available to take home for the winter months.

The book exchange will open again about the middle of May. The hours are 3-6 p.m. Tuesdays and 9 a.m.-noon Saturdays.

Everything is for the taking; no exchange is necessary, but book donations are accepted.
