Grand Marais Public Library is working to provide Cook County residents the library services they need where they need them. To foster conversation, we're coming to various sites around the county during the week of June 18-22, and we're bringing the sPARKit! with us! sPARKit! is a project sponsored by Springboard for the Arts in the Twin Cities, and features fun activities for adults and children. The “sPARKit” mobile trailer invites the public to come, play games, and engage in conversation. Participants may learn about online security, parental controls, electrical safety, energy efficiency, lung cancer, colon cancer screening and more! There may be a variety of arts activities, such as felting a lung with the American Lung Association, or playing games with the YMCA staff. The event will be a little different each day, with fun activities also planned for every site. Besides the library, the partners for this event include: Arrowhead Electric, True North, the American Lung Assocation of Minnesota and the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic. Those who attend will have opportunities to engage with all the partners, to learn how to be safe online, and to have some good summer fun! Events are scheduled for the following times and places: Monday, June 18, 10-2pm at Ryden’s Border Store Tuesday, June 19, 10-2pm at Hovland Town Hall Wednesday. June 20, 10-2pm at Trail Center Thursday, June 21, 10-2pm at Lutsen Town Hall Friday, June 22, 10-2pm at Birch Grove School Please join us at a location near you!
