Come Paint With Us

Grubbs Painting

Tammy Grubbs Painting Party

Join us Saturday, February 20 from 1-4 pm at the Hole-in-the-Mountain Chalet for a painting party for all ages. Sign up at the Lake Benton Public Library by Saturday, February 13. Learn a new skill or simply enjoy creating something yourself.

This class is open to everyone from beginner to expert. All participants will paint the above landscape on an 11 x 16 canvas to take home. We are asking for a $10 deposit at signing up to help pay for supply costs.

"This project was funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota's arts and cultural heritage."


Winter Reading Program

Book Your Winter Getaway”, the annual winter reading program sponsored by the Plum Creek Library System and its member libraries, will begin January 2, and run through March 31, 2016.

The program, open to ages 18 and beyond, is held every year during the winter months, and rewards readers for doing what they love to do - read. Participation is simple: sign up at your local library, and pledge to read at least 12 books during the 3-month long program. Most readers will meet that goal and many will exceed that number. Most Plum Creek Library System libraries offer patrons who complete the challenge an incentive prize. In addition, libraries will be given recognition for various distinctions including the most new participants enrolled in the program and most books read throughout the three-month period.
