Spring is a time for new beginnings. Here at Pine River Public Library we have begun.
Michaela Reed has begun as our new associate librarian. She is a long standing member of our community and many of us have known her for a long time.
Her parents, Liz Hedman and Scott Amundson are friends of mine. Liz worked at our old library, and many of you may remember her and her lovely daughter.
Come into the library and reacquaint yourselves with Michaela. Ask her about her favorite authors and what she studies at school in St. Cloud. Find out about her goals after finishing her schooling in St. Cloud. We at Pine River Library are happy to have her as our new/old member of our family.
Thanks to the free Legacy Program funded thanks to voters on November 4, 2008, preserving Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage, we have a new program coming to Pine River May 14th at 2 PM at Pine River Public Library. This will be Arna Rennan, presenting a musical performance featuring translated stories about Norwegian immigrants.
Music will be included from a variety of genres including the simple four lined poems, broadsides, waltz tunes, vaudeville songs from “Snoose Boulevard” sung in “Swenglish”, along with well known favorites here in Minnesota.
If you are Norwegian or if you know someone who is Norwegian or if your check out lady at the grocery is Norwegian or if you know where Norway is, you might want to attend this program. I know I will. I may not be Norwegian, but I like music.
