In the last column I reviewed programming and events for 2012. This time, I thought I would share some statistics.
- We were open 303 days in 2012.
Our display case this month features the music boxes belonging to Irene Hagen. The display case is booked through July, but if you have a collection you would like to share, contact the library to schedule a month to display them – 320-589-1634.
The library will be closed on Monday, Feb. 18 for President’s Day.
