Start Off the School Year With Events at Your Library: Grand Marais

We’ve stopped at the Two Harbors and Silver Bay public libraries in earlier reports, and now it’s time to continue our drive up Highway 61 to Grand Marais. On the drive, you’ll see some beautiful views of Lake Su-perior and possibly smell the aroma of hot cocoa wafting from your travel mug, mixed with the scent of fall.

Beginning on October 1, acrylic painting take-and-make kits became available. The kit was designed by 321 Art Studio in Chisholm, and is suitable for both beginning and more advanced painters. The kit includes one rounded canvas, three 4 X 4 inch canvas panels (to create a triptych), and an acrylic paint set and brush. Two instruction-al videos are also available. These are available free on a first come first serve basis.

Beginning October 12th, story times will be hosted every other Thursday at 10:15 a.m. Story times will include stories, songs, and a simple craft. Activities are geared to-wards ages 0-5, but all ages are welcome.

On October 18th at 6 p.m., the library will be hosting Exploring Graphic Memoir with Lynn Von Sien, a graphic memorist who lives and works in Northern Minnesota. Von Sien is the author of the soon-to-be complete graphic memoir Snow Emergency Route, an account of her caregiving for her terminally ill adoptive mother. Von Sien has been published in The Nib, Solstice Literary Magazine, and several anthologies. A graphic memoir is a memoir with pictures to accompany the text.

Be sure to check out https://www.grandmaraislibrary.org/  and Grand Marais Public Library’s Facebook page for updates and more details. Enjoy your hot cocoa and the fall colors!

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!
