Silver Bay Public Library
Book Sale Reminder: The Friends of the Silver Bay Public Library will hold their annual book sale on Saturday, July 13, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. The library is now accepting donations of used books. (Please no musty books, used text books, Reader’s Digest condensed books or magazines.) We also accept videos in any format as well as audio books. This year’s book sale will be bigger than ever, which means lots of unpacking and sorting of books. If you can help the Friends and your library please call and sign-up at 218-226-4331. You will be allowed to purchase books a day ahead of time at regular book sale prices. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

New Library Service: E-Magazines! The Arrowhead Library System has purchased a subscription to Zinio, an e-magazine vendor, to make electronic magazines available to you, the public, at no cost. We have access to 89 titles, covering a variety of topics from outdoors and sports to entertainment and fashion. Some titles you might recognize from the print copies on the library’s shelves, but the vast majority will be new! These electronic magazines will be accessible from just about any internet-connected device. Stop by the library to learn more!
The Friends of the Two Harbors Public Library is hosting the Restoration Raffle. All of the proceeds will go toward restoring the Two Harbors Public Library, including new seating, new computers, new shelving, new carpeting, fresh paint, and refinished windows. The raffle prizes are a heart quilt by Louise Fransen, a Blue Skies glass sculpture by Michael Tonder, a lacewood plate by Tom Koehler, and a pottery bowl by Dick Cooter. The quilt can currently be seen hanging in the library; we have pictures of the other prizes, although the items themselves are not currently on display. Tickets are $5 each and can be purchased from the library front desk, from one of the Friends of the Library, or from a number of participating local businesses.
