THANK YOU! YOU GUYS ROCK!

Vicki, the Graceville Library staff and I, would like to give a big thank you to the Friends of the Library. For the last several months, they have been purchasing the books, DVDs, and audio books that you have been checking out at the library, as we had run out of funds through PLS. If it were not for their hard work and dedication, we would not have what we do today. If you know one of the members of the Friends of the Graceville library, please be sure to thank them. We sure do.

MN AUTHOR TO VISIT GRACEVILLE TONIGHT

MN author, Marty Seifert, will be at the library to tell us about his book, “Sundown at Sunrise” from 6 pm to 7:30 pm tonight. This is a free program and open to the public.

Based on a true tale from the early 1900s, this work of historical fiction gives life to murderer William Kleeman, a handsome young farmer from southwestern Minnesota who courts the beautiful Maud Petri. After a quick engagement and marriage, the couple produces four children and are joined by boarder Mary Snelling, who teaches at the country school across the road. This addictive story winds through many twists before ending in a deadly rampage that results in one of the most notorious ax murders in American history. This book was recently read by our adult book club and was a big hit. This is a free event and open to the public.
