In this highly interactive program, Mrs. Wilder, also known as Melanie Stringer, relates stories of her real life experiences of life on the prairie in 1896 as told from Laura’s perspective in an unscripted interpretation of Wilder’s experiences. Every Meet Laura Ingalls Wilder program offers a research-based, first-person, interactive history lesson to students and Wilder fans of all ages. Programs feature original research, hands-on artifact displays, period-authentic clothing and much more.
Mrs. Wilder’s appearances are made possible through the state’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund, which dedicates funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
Ebooks Minnesota, an online ebook collection spearheaded by Minnesota’s libraries, is open to Minnesota readers. The collection is accessible online at EbooksMN.org and via free apps from iTunes, Google Play, and Kindle. There is no charge to libraries or individuals who wish to use the collection, and no username or password is required. Ebooks Minnesota is open to all readers within Minnesota’s borders.
No process is required to “check out” a book. Readers can access any book in the collection at any time regardless of how many other readers are also using that book. This feature makes the collection particularly useful for schools that may wish to assign a single book to an entire class or even an entire school. Likewise, community book clubs, no matter how large, can read books together without worrying about checkout limits or due dates.
The collection contains more than 2,000 books, including titles from these Minnesota publishers: ABDO, Lerner Publishing Group, Cherry Lake Publishing, University of Minnesota Press, Milkweed Press, and Coffeehouse Press. Nonfiction titles from Arcadia Publishing about Minnesota and its history are also included in the collection. A selection of popular titles that are in the public domain, such as "Dracula." and “Jane Eyre,” completes the collection.
