Kids’ Summer Reading Party!
Thursday, August 7th, 2:00 pm

Kids – we’ve reached the end of the Library Summer Reading Program! That means it’s time to celebrate with games, snacks, and draw the winners of the big prizes! You don’t have to be present to win, but it certainly is more fun that way. ;)

THPL Lego Club
Wednesday, August 6th, 3:00 pm

This is the third meeting of the THPL Lego club!

The library provides all the legos so that kids don’t need to worry about bringing any of their own. In fact, it might be best for kids to leave their own legos at home, so that they don’t get mixed in with everybody else’s.

The Lego club will involve special building challenges, where participants will be given a specific allotment of legos and time to build something really cool, then show off to fellow lego builders at the end.

So if you enjoy building cool lego stuff, and like to face a challenge, then this club is for you!

Sit Down With Stand Up
Thursday, July 31st, 6:00 pm

The Arrowhead Library System is pleased to present Sit Down with Stand Up, a free comedy writing workshop!


Have you been told you are funny? Have you ever considered becoming a stand-up comedian? Or thought of writing comedy routines? Then attend Sit Down with a Stand Up, Scott Novotny’s comedy writing program that incorporates the history and culture of stand-up comedy in Minnesota and its development since the 1970’s. Scott recently celebrated his 30th anniversary of being a full-time professional stand-up comedian. Over that time, Scott has had people laughing from coast to coast with his clean, non-offensive, very funny observations and humor.

Scott guides participants through stand-up comedy, improvisation, and comedy writing as well as live demonstrations of a comedy routine. Workshop participants will stay engaged by using Scott’s comedy writing formula for beginning writers.

Minnesotan born (Rochester) and educated (Gustavus Adolphus College), Scott has written for HBO, Dudley Rigg’s Brave New Workshop, TV commercials, Strange Brew daily comic strip, and Saturday Night Live. Let Scott help you find your comedy style in this writing workshop for teens, young adults, and adults of all ages!

This program has been paid in part or in full by Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Legacy Logo ColorFinalLegacy Fund.

Farewell Open House
Friday, July 25th, 3:00 pm

Michele Monson, director of the Two Harbors Public Library, will be leaving us at the end of this summer. She has played a dynamic role at the library, leading us through a major remodeling project, the selection and installation of new artwork, and the updating of all our computer stations, just to name a few of her projects. She will be sorely missed.

In honor of Michele’s hard work, we will host a Farewell Open House, both as an opportunity to celebrate her good works, and as an opportunity for the general public to say ‘good-bye.’

Wanting this to be a festive event, we will have displays showing some of what Michele has accomplished while here, a guest book for people to sign and leave fun comments in, and an assortment of teas, coffee, and bars.

Make sure you stop by to say ‘hi’ and wish Michele luck as she moves on!
