THIS YEAR's CHILI FEED fundraiser will be on October 21, and will feature Duluth author Lucie B. Amundsen. She will regale us with stories from her book, "Locally Laid: How We Built a Plucky Industry-Changing Egg Farm - from Scratch." The library has two copies of her book (Click HERE to go to our library catalog). More info HERE.
The Friends of the Larsen Family Public Library, at their May meeting, donated $1500 to the library to augment the books and materials in the children’s area. The Friends were able to raise these funds through proceeds from our monthly used book sales (held the second Saturday of each month), and from last year’s chili feed. We wish to thank all who helped make these donations possible.
First Saturday of each month - a free book to each child attending storytime!
Please join us for another opportunity for Story Time! Burnett County Family Literacy will be reading for Story Time every Saturday at 11 am! The readers are also available for help with scheduling individual tutoring. Click HERE to see the full poster!
