Walk to collapse
Those curious about the forces that recently brought down Tettegouche State Park’s well-known sea arch can join a naturalist at 10 a.m. Sunday for a half-mile walk along Lake Superior to the site of the collapsed sea arch and visit the new landform left in its place. Walkers will hear how the rocky history not only created the features along the shoreline but also sealed the fate of the arch. Meet at the park office for the 45-minute walk.

The Friends of the Two Harbors Library will hold its annual book sale Sept. 10-11 at the community center. Friday’s hours are noon to 5 p.m. and Saturday’s are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. with bag sale (all the books you can fit in a grocery bag for $2) at 1:30 Saturday. Donations of books, CDs, and DVDs are being accepted at the library.
Money raised by the Friends is used to purchase items for the library that are not in the budget. Recently, the Friends paid for the guards on the stairway, a Newsbank newspaper subscription, and the summer reading programs. The Friends also sponsor programs throughout the year.
The golden age of radio – the period when radio reached its peak popularity with general audiences in the 1930s and 1940s – will be the topic of a free 7 p.m. show Sept. 23 at Mitchell Auditorium at the College of St. Scholastica. Rides are being offered to the show through the two Lake County libraries.
Prudence Johnson and Dan Chouinard will share their interpretations of classic standards of the 1930s and 1940s in voice and piano, interspersed with period photos and memories of the era from Minnesotans of all walks of life. The Two Harbors Public Library and the Friends of the Library are partnering with the Silver Bay Library and its Friends to use state funding to provide free transportation for those who need it.
Sign up is at the library while seats last for a Minnesota Coaches bus that will pick up riders at the Two Harbors Depot parking lot at 5:45 p.m.
