Grand Marais Public Library
Sat, 10/03/2015 (All day) - Wed, 10/21/2015 (All day)
The Grand Marais Public Library hosts a variety of events and programs for families, children, and adults.
Dlutkowski Violin Performance: Fiddling sisters Emma and Carrie Dlutkowski will perform on Saturday, October 3, at 1 pm. Together with their mother Susan, accompanying on piano, this trio has delighted audiences around Michigan's western Upper Peninsula with their high-energy musicality, drawing on the dynamic music of Canadian and American fiddle traditions. Adding clogging (foot percussion) and Ottawa Valley step dancing to their performances reinforces the driving rhythm of their “stunningly fast fiddling.”
"Stories Sing!": Monday, October 12, at 10:30am. "Stories Sing" is a special story time presentation by the Minnesota Opera. Teaching Artist Alisa Magallón will read and sing a children’s picture book with an opera theme. Magallón also brings an educational twist to the program, sharing tips with parents and caregivers on how to bring books to life with music and song --increasing early literacy and creating a love of both music and reading.
Third Wednesday Technology Open House: October 21, 6-8 pm. All who have technology questions are invited to attend, as are those who would be willing to serve as tech mentors to others. "Beginners or below" can spend time with a mentor to learn the basics of using a computer or mobile device. The sessions are unstructured. Depending on need, attention may be highly individualized. Participants may bring their own devices or use those owned by the library.
Many of the Library's public events are sponsored by the Arrowhead Library System and funded in whole or in part by Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
