Can you believe it? We just hit September, the school year just started, and we are already hosting the month’s Library Board Meeting. As usual, the meeting is open to the public, so everyone is welcome to sit-in and learn how the library is run.

It is time for the Friends of the Two Harbors Public Library’s 3rd quarter meeting! Hear how the summer book sales and reading programs went and help in planning the upcoming fall events.
Briand Morrison began his musical career around the family’s dining room table, was in a rock band by 6th grade, hired as a guitar teacher by the West Bank School of Music at the age of 16, and has continued studying music and performing ever since. While his musical style has really evolved over the years, he describes himself currently as a “Blues/Rock act that is reminiscent of a Hendrixy Stevie Ray Allman Bros Early Clapton sound – a refined 60/70s style with a flavorful chord or two utilizing a looper, drum machine and some vocal.” He also keeps true to the classical jazz, wearing a nice tux and playing a Gibson L5.
Morrison’s Jazz performance is sure to be classy; if you’ve ever appreciated the jazz style, then this performance is not one to miss.
For more information about Morrison, or a sneak peak at one of his recorded shows, check out his website at: http://www.briandmorrison.com/index.htm
This event is sponsored by the Arrowhead Library System and funded by money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
We read manga, watch anime, eat Japanese food, and in general have a great time! All teens are welcome to attend, so stop by and give it a try!
“The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared” by Jonas Jonasson.
“After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health, and one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested (and he’d like a bit more control over his alcohol consumption). So he decides to escape, embarking on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey.
“It would be the adventure of a lifetime for anyone else, but Allan has a larger-than-life backstory: Not only has he witnessed some of the most important events of the twentieth century, he has actually played a key role in them. Quirky and utterly unique, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared has charmed readers across the world.”
(description from the back cover of the Hyperion 1st edition copy)
Copies of the book are available at the library front desk; everyone is welcome to join in the discussion.
The Two Harbors Public Library Board of Trustees will be meeting on Tuesday, August 5th at 5pm; and on Monday, August 11th at noon. Both meetings will be in the Library Meeting Room, and both are open to the public.
Come join us for an open house thrown in honor of Lois Johnson’s retirement! Lois began working at the library back when she was in high school and earned $0.50 per hour. She was a library page from 1949-1952. After that, she worked off-and-on as a volunteer for many years before officially being hired as a Library Aide again in 1990, a position she has kept until now. What a wonderful career! So come join us in thanking Lois for all of her hard work over the years!
