library to construct poetry walk

The Grand Marais Public Library plans to construct a new poetry walk leading from the library front entrance toward the corner across from the Visit Cook County offices and Dairy Queen. Currently individuals walking between those businesses must walk in the street or through a sometimes mushy lawn. The committee in charge of the project envisions a sidewalk including poetry by local individuals, tied in to the Puzzle Tree sculpture added last year as a Legacy Program art project that was funded by through monies made available to Arrowhead Library System.
 
Application forms for those wishing to submit a poem are available online or may be picked up at the library or City Hall.
