Lots of books of all interests to choose from


September is officially Library Card Sign-up Month, a time to remember that a library card is the most important school supply of all. When children under the age of 10 sign up for a new library card during this month, they will receive a canvas bag and a book of their own to keep. The bags were purchased with a generous donation from a library patron and the books are from the Crow Wing County United Way through Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library Program.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
