Readers Needed

We are still looking for volunteers to be a part of the Inter-generational Reading Program at the Senior Center. Just 45 minutes a week, and you could make the difference in the life of a child....and in your life too. These relationships are such a benefit to both generations.... If you've been on the fence about this, I encourage you to come by today at 1:45 and see if this is for you! Even if you cant commit to every week, we could always use your help when you are available. Call 387-2660 with any questions.

Library Day Tomorrow at 1pm!

This group gathering at 1:00pm for the parents and their children whose ages are (0-7). We will have a story read to us by Patsy when we first arrive. Then the kids can go look at books and explore the computers and toys while Patsy gives the parents an informational session on how the kids section of the library works and answer any questions you might have. Once that is finished, we will gather back as a group and do a “Show & Tell” presentation. Each child will bring something that they would love to “Show” to the group and “Tell” them why they like this certain thing or how they are good at doing what ever it is they are good at! Be creative and lets have fun! The Public and Home Schooling families are encouraged to join!


This event is put on by the Grand Marais Public Library and the North Shore, MN Home Schooling Group
