Media release from the Grand Marais Public Library - January 2, 1018


Back by popular demand, Library Friends of Cook County and Grand Marais Public
Library are offering another round of Fast Friends at Grand Marais Public Library on
Saturday, January 19, from 11 AM until 1 PM.

Fast Friends is a casual and upbeat social gathering for adults in a welcoming environment – your library.

“Imagine a speed-dating set up without the pressure of dating,” explained Assistant
Director Amanda St. John. “We give participants fun conversation prompts and 7 minutes
to chat with one other person at a time. The first group was ecstatic for the introvert-
friendly format. It’s a great way for people to meet and get to know one another!”

In today’s world, one of the most powerful things we can do is connect with each other
face-to-face, especially with our neighbors and community. Please join us. We’d like to
meet you!

Tea and cookies will be provided by the Library Friends of Cook County.
