Library News and Events

minnesota center for book arts classes

The Grand Marais Art Colony is hosting classes offered by MCBA On The Road on Saturday, October 18 and Sunday, October 19.  Class information and registration at MCBA.
These are hands-on workshops designed for adults at all skill levels. Take your projects home with you to inspire future projects!

This activity 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.


Getting ready for the boomers!

Grand Marais Public Library anticipates increasing numbers of users who are retired baby boomers in the coming years. In preparation for “the wave” the library is purchasing more large print titles for the collection. Nearly fifty titles have been added this summer, some from the library budget, and some via memorial gift funds. Big name authors such as Stephen King, Janet Evanovich, Louise Penny, Alexander McCall-Smith, David Housewright, Tom Clancy, and William Kent Krueger can, or will soon, be found on the large print shelves.
Whereas large print was formerly the province of romance novels, today the market covers a much broader spectrum of reading interests, with broader appeal to both men and women. Anyone who may experience eye-strain trying to read print that seems ever smaller is encouraged to visit the library to check out the selection.
