We are part of The Trust Project.

The Brainerd Public Library would like to thank everyone who helped make our 2022 “Read Beyond the Beaten Path,” Summer Reading Program a fun and new way to read, explore and learn.

We are so proud of the dedicated young readers who read for pure enjoyment during the summer months. We are able to offer this free program to the children in our community because of the help and support of the Friends of the Brainerd Public Library, individual donors, volunteers and these local businesses and organizations: Big Jay’s Arcade, Brainerd Area Sertoma Club, Coco Moon, Crossing Arts Alliance, Crow Wing Energized, Dragon Forge Games, Fancy Pants Chocolates, Goody’s Gourmet Treats, Kiwanis of Brainerd, Knotty Pine Bakery, LaVonne Danzl, McDonalds, Mickey’s Pizza and Subs, Northland Arboretum, Papa Murphy’s Pizza and WonderTrek Children’s Museum.

Your donations of coupons, prizes and monetary support were a wonderful way to reward the kids for reading and kept them excited about it throughout the summer.

A special thanks to LaVonne Danzl for donating books for kids to take home. Thanks to parents, families and caregivers for encouraging kids to read. It is fantastic to see the community come together to help support the Summer Reading Program.

We had a fantastic year with more than 350 children signing up to read. Thanks for helping to encourage the children in our community to read. With all this help, many kids will enjoy more success in the new school year ahead. We are building great readers one book at a time. The young readers of today are our future.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at www.brainerddispatch.com. News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
