Find Your Program

Teens interested in cartooning, adults interested in family history, kids interested in acting classes, young children interested in the natural world – all will find programs to enjoy at Great River Regional Library (GRRL) in March.

The library’s first StoryCorps event will take place at the Annandale Area Public Library March 14-16. StoryCorps is a national oral history project that captures conversations between people who are part of each other’s lives. Conversations are recorded to provide a history of the important moments and periods in personal lives and the national tapestry.

Nine of our branch libraries will present Cartoon Art Workshops in March: Annandale, Big Lake, Cokato, Delano, Howard Lake, Kimball, St. Cloud, Swanville, and Waite Park. Teens can learn what it takes to be an illustrator and author of their own book from artist educator Shayann Hoffer.

Guthrie acting professionals will continue to provide fun acting and storytelling classes for specified age groups, including Acting Games for Beginners, and Duke It Out: Intro to Stage Combat.

And the Minnesota Zoomobile will continue its visits to GRRL branches, sharing fun facts about animal lives and habitats.

This programming is funded with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on Nov. 4, 2008, which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota's arts and cultural heritage.
