Musical program to be presented April 30


Wednesday, April 30, at 6:30 p.m. is the time set for our next heritage program. We’ll be presenting Lauren Pelon’s program, “Music from the Backyard and Front Porch.”

This presentation will feature music and stories of America’s indigenous people, songs and instruments of America’s many immigrants, and Pelon’s own compositions.

This is a free program open to everyone, sponsored by our library and Kitchigami Regional Library System. It is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Spring cleaning?

We are always open to donations of books. And this might be a good time to bring them in. We can’t accept National Geographics, encyclopedias, Reader’s Digest books or text books. We will take anything else.

We’re trying to build up a large reserve of books to have in our book sale. It’s hard to believe, but we are 10 years old this year, so we’d love to have the best-ever book sale. Thanks for your consideration.

Monthly exhibit

April 14-27 an exhibit on the remembrance of The Holocaust is being presented. Books written by survivors of this event are plentiful in our library; a list of them is provided. Newspaper articles, both local and distant, are available for reading as well.

Thank you, volunteers

As always, thank you to our selfless and smart volunteers. This month we give special recognition to volunteer Jodi Nies, who devised a form for keeping track, monthly, of volunteer hours and hours the library is open. Her new form saves the library so much time compared to the older form and is so much simpler to use.

Thanks, Jodi!
