"NORTH COUNTRY CHARACTERS"

presented by The Sutter Brothers

Tuesday, Sept. 13, 1:30 pm

The public is welcome and invited to attend!

 The Sutter Brothers evoke the landscape, critters, and quirky characters of northern Minnesota through songs and stories, poetry and music. Their music ranges from songs of immigrant longing to their hilarious hit, “When the Smelt Buckets are Loaded, I’m Coming Home to You.”

"WINTERING" / Peter Geye

Tuesday, Sept. 27, 1:30 pm

Follow a father and son’s epic journey into the forbidding wilds of the Boundary Waters.  This presentation will include slides of the sources that inspired and informed the writing of Peter Geye’s Wintering including images of the maps that play a central role in the story, and in the exploration of this territory.


These programs, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, were funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.

Read for the Win! Summer Reading Programs




The 2016 Summer Reading programs for children and teens have reached their conclusion.  This year, 90 children and 18 teens signed up to participate. The 59 children who turned in reading logs reported reading (or having read to them, in the case of children too young to read) 36,575 pages during the 7 weeks of the program.  MANY of these pages were read to children by local day care providers.  CONGRATULATIONS, CHILDREN AND ALL WHO READ TO THEM!  4 teens turned in reading logs and reported completing 43 reading challenges.  Way to go, teen readers!

The reading programs are over, but the summer is not.  Even if there are no more prizes until next summer, keep on reading!

The PTO has donated $5 gift certificates to the Fall book fair to all children who completed at least one strip on their reading record.  Many children also earned vouchers for the St. Louis County Fair. If you have not yet picked up your certificate or vouchers, please come do so!
