Guests will learn about some of MN’s most renowned haunted places and experience strange phenomena these places seem to share with artifacts that have been retrieved from their sites.
Stop in for the Usborne book fair today from noon to 6! With each item you purchase, you help the library get free books! Come in and find some great books for your kids and help support your library at the same time!
On our way to see the Wabash Caves, Harriet Island, and then do a Gangster Tour in St. Paul! Everyone looks bright eyed don’t they. 😁

We have 6 computers that need new homes now that we have updated our system here at the library as of this Monday. These computers are not very old but we now have Windows 10 which our old ones did not have. We are selling them as a unit, monitor and tower, for $200. If you are interested please stop by the library or call 320-748-7332 for more information. The equipment has been deemed antiquated by our PLS IT department. It will be sold “as is” with no warranty. PLS and its affiliated libraries assume no responsibility for the equipment after purchase. All the hard drives have been professionally wiped clean of all data and application software. If Windows is included with the computer, corresponding license is included.

The Minnesota Historical Society Executive Council recently awarded a Minnesota Historical & Cultural Heritage Grant in the amount of $10,000 to the Graceville Public Library for the Acquire Microfilm Reader/Printer/Scanner project. County Librarian, Vicki Bartz, states this is a project the Friends of the Graceville Library has wanted to do for quite some time. The grant was started last fall. We had a demonstration given to us by one of the vendors in January. Amy Anderson, Library Assistant really liked the microfilm reader demonstrated and so we went forward with the grant. Patrons will find this reader very small, easy to use, with many new options to use. Once the microfilm reader gets installed we will have a demonstration done to show all of our patrons who are interested some of the really nice features they can use. We certainly want to thank the Minnesota Historical Society for offering and awarding us this grant.
A big huge thank you to Vicki who has worked and worked for this to go through for a very very long time. She never gave up and I am so glad she didn’t. Thank you Vicki for your dedication. This will be a huge asset for our library and community.~Amy Beth Anderson
