Through August, the library will highlight an exhibit on oral history taking.
Nisswa resident Clarence Carlson grew up in Hibbing, the son of immigrants from the Finnish island of Ahland. As a 19-year-old, he entered World War II, where, as an infantryman, he participated in five famous battles.
See Carlson’s comments and memories about his unique life experiences. Browse the table for ideas and books on how to take your own oral history or the oral history of a family member or friend.
Thank you, volunteer Ann Hutchings, for the special care you give to setting up the exhibits in the library. You always have good ideas and take good care of the items on display.

“Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won’t have as much censorship because we won’t have as much fear.” — Judy Blume
