Cokato Public Library is closed for renovations. The library will reopen Thursday, April 24.
"I Love To Read"
Kayla Brisk from Pierz is going to the Minnesota State Fair.
Kayla, 14, received four free tickets to the Minnesota State Fair and a certificate after being the lucky winner of a drawing to find Great River Regional Library's Summer Reading Program Blue Ribbon Reader.
Participants in the library's Summer Reading Program were invited to submit short essays on why they love to read. Here is some of what Kayla wrote: "I love to read because all books are magical. They can take you places that you have never been or places that you'll never see.... Reading isn't just about learning but having a fun adventure filled with excitement."
