There is already a great line-up of programs slated for the Winter 2015 season. Hot Reads for Cold Nights, the adult winter reading program, begins on Friday, January 2nd. The Friends of the Library will be hosting Hot Reads Tuesdays during the program. They are providing yummy goodies for everyone who visits the library on Tuesday mornings between 10:00 and noon. Of course, this is first come, first served!
|Travels & Tribulations|
During the two months of the Hot Reads program, there will be a number of Brown Bag lunch and other programs for you to enjoy. On January 15th at noon, local author Melody Swenson will be back with author--and Chisholm coaching legend--Bob McDonald. They will be promoting their new book, Travels and Tribulations--A Coach's Journey.
|Cornets & Pickaxes|
St. Olaf College professor Paul Niemisto will present a Brown Bag lunch at noon on January 29th. His book, Cornets and Pickaxes -- Finnish Brass on the Iron Range, is about Finnish musicians who moved to the Arrowhead region. It "measures the value and influence these Finnish bands had on cultural life of the early twentieth century Iron Range..." Musicians and history buffs alike should enjoy this program!
Moving on to March, we will have a program brought to us by the Arrowhead Library System with funding from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Legacy Fund. Northern Gael, which is comprised of Laura MacKenzie and the Sutter Brothers, is sure to have everyone's toes tapping with their traditional Irish and Scottish tunes. They will be presenting their program in the library lobby on Wednesday, March 18th at 1:00.
