Calumet Public Library announces events, new hours

CALUMET -- The Calumet Public Library announces two events open to the public on Wednesday evenings in September and October.

On Wednesday, Sept. 15, Friends of the Calumet Public Library will hold their monthly meeting at 5:30 p.m. in the Library. The meeting is open to all. Darryl Pierce, superintendent of the Public Schools of Calumet-Laurium-Keweenaw (CLK), will meet with the Friends of the Calumet Public Library to discuss changes in library services necessitated by budgetary concerns and will update us on future efforts to secure funding for the library. All are welcome to attend this important meeting.

A meeting of the Wish List committee will follow the monthly meeting.

On Wednesday, Oct. 13, Red Jacket Readers invite the public to join them at 6:30 p.m. for a discussion of the entertaining book, A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail, by Bill Bryson.

Even if you've never considered hiking the 2,100-mile trail stretching from Maine to Georgia, you are sure to identify with elements in this humorous sketch of Bryson's (middle-aged and out of shape) experience. This discussion will be led by Jane DeMartini, and refreshments will be served. (Bring your favorite trail mix!) Multiple copies of the book are available in the library, so start reading today! (Local booksellers have copies of this modern classic, if you'd like to purchase a copy of your own.)

Beginning Monday, Sept. 13, Calumet Public Library hours will be as follows:
  • Monday -- 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday -- 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday -- 8 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.
  • Thursday -- 8 a.m. - 6 p.m.
  • Friday -- 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
(In case of bad weather, when school is canceled, all library programs are canceled.)
