Start Off the School Year with Events at Your Library: Two Harbors

September is the month that starts the season called fall (or autumn, depending on your use of English). Cooler days, flannel shirts, and pumpkin spice appear as summer vacations end. Oh, and school. School starts again.

To me, nothing says fall like crisp air,  a warm cup of coffee, and a good book – which brings me to this article. September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month, and I’d like to highlight some upcoming events at your local library. Today’s local library: Two Harbors Public Library. Located on Waterfront Drive, the Two Harbors Public Library exists in both the historic Carnegie Library and the adjoining edition added in 1983.

Each Wednesday, the Two Harbors Public Library hosts a storytime for children from 10:30 to 11 a.m. These storytimes are held in the children’s area, or on the patio if weather permits, and feature a fun craft or activity along with the stories.

Adults have an event later on Wednesdays. From 1-3 p.m., adults can drop in to play chess, cribbage, cards, and more. Light refreshments are provided, and the game days are done in collaboration with Community Partners.

Adults have several book club opportunities in the month of September. Where the Deer and Antelope Play by Nick Offerman will be discussed September 11th from 11 a.m. to noon at the Morning Book Circle. Books and Brews will be held again on September 19th at Castle Danger Brewery, and the Short and Sweet Book Club will be discussing Chapter One of Betsy-Tacy on September 21st from 6-6:45 p.m.

3D Printing Pens, called 3Doodlers, are a fun and challenging art experience. Children ages 9-12 can come to the library meeting room on September 13th from 4-4:30 p.m. to try out these pens. Pre-registration is required for supply purposes.

Beginning September 15th and meeting on Friday afternoons from 3-4 p.m. until November 3rd, third through fifth graders can sign up for an eight-week math club, Crazy 8s. The club is designed to show kids that “math is a really fun, recreational activity to do with friends during playtime outside of school.”

On September 20th, adult learners are invited to attend a presentation in the library meeting room. “The Teacher Is In: Adult Education Office Hours” will take place from 10-11 a.m., and Deann is available to answer questions concerning GEDs, basic computer skills, increasing reading, writing, and math abilities, improving English language skills, preparing for college, and more.

Duluth CareerForce staff have their mobile office hours at the library on September 25th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Adults can stop in for free advice on navigating a job search, career change, unemployment insurance, and more.

The library is launching a Teen Advisory Group, and all teens ages 12-18 are invited on September 29th to an introductory meeting from 2-2:30 p.m. Teens will get to help design library programs, earn volunteer hours, and make their voices heard. Pre-registration is requested. Be sure to check out https://www.twohar-borspubliclibrary.com/events/  for updates and more details. Until then, pull out your library card and a latte and enjoy the beginning of fall!

Hello! My name is Haley Searls. I’ve loved writing from an early age, though my nonfiction writing at five years old consisted mainly of weather and gardening reports. I still have some of those early articles: “It’s sunny.” “It’s still sunny.” “It’s raining.” I’m glad to say my writing has improved since then. I wrote a guest post for the Silver Bay Public Library blog, and was the writer/editor of the newsletter for my American Heritage Girls troop. I have been writing for the North Shore Journal since June 2022. Besides writing, I love reading, drawing, photography, music, and spending time with family and friends. Two books that have really influenced my writing are Reforming Journalism by Marvin Olasky and Writer to Writer by Bodie and Brock Thoene. As a journalist, I want to share positive community interactions and inspire people to make lasting connections. Article topics that interest me are ones which show community activities and involvement. Such articles include community events, youth accomplishments, library programming, small businesses, local history, local artists and authors, art programs, and cultural events such as theater and dance. If you have an article idea, email the North Shore Journal with my name in the subject line! I look forward to hearing from you!
