Pequot Lakes Library appreciates patrons, volunteers

This month's featured artist is Gail Burgoyne, who offers watercolors that will make you think spring


The Pequot Lakes Library truly appreciates its patrons and volunteers, and thanks them for everything they do.

Notes about this and that

  • The library features artists from around the area. Displays change every two months or seasonally. Painter Gail Burgoyne transitions from winter to spring. Come see her watercolors in March. They’ll make you think spring.
  • Our book display table makes note of Children’s Reading Month. And please, if you haven’t already done so, take a peek in our Children’s Room. Some might say it’s the best room in the library (especially kids). Our boat now has flags and is ready to sail. And in honor of this special month, we have numerous new children’s books thanks to a generous donation from a patron family.
  • The Crow Wing County Resource Guide is available at the library thanks to the Echo Journal newspaper.
