Library news: summer program starts
By: Lake County News-Chronicle, Lake County News Chronicle
Carly Hawkinson, a naturalist at Gooseberry Falls State Park, has been bringing nature stories and activities to Two Harbors and Silver Bay Public libraries once a month. On Friday the weather was beautiful and the group at Two Harbors had the first outdoor storytime using the new library patio. The nature storytimes will return to the libraries in the fall after the busy tourism season.
In the photo at right, Nya Johnson, Sky Ronstad, and Anna Johnson-Grant joined Hawkinson for a close-up look at a blue jay in a photo by Steve Carlson of Knife River.
Kids in preschool to sixth grade are invited to join the Two Harbors Public Library’s summer reading program beginning today.
Stop by the library to sign up and get a welcome packet. For every five books read during the program, kids get a prize and are entered in drawings.
Throughout the summer there will be crafts, activities, and entertainers. In addition to the regular prizes, there will also be four grand prizes: Harry Potter Lego Game, Friendship Bracelets Kit, Qwirkle Game, and a Mind Blowing Science Kit.
There will also be movies held at the library throughout the summer.
If you have any questions, please contact the library at 834-3148.
Duane Barnhart, a professional watercolorist, will be conducting a watercolor presentation at the library at 6:30 p.m. Monday.
His work has appeared in both regional and national magazines.
Come hear him speak about his art and see him demonstrate his technique. This program is primarily designed for an adult audience, with or without pervious watercolor experience, although younger patrons are certainly welcome to attend.
The program is funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
