Friends of Calumet Public Library to meet Jan. 11, host events

CALUMET -- Friends of the Calumet Public Library will meet at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 11, in the library. This is an open meeting; new members and new ideas are welcome. There are many ways to lend a hand at the library: programming ideas, volunteer opportunities, the Red Jacket Readers book club, and more! Come find out what's ahead this winter at the Calumet Public Library.

Julie Waara will be presenting "How to REcreate a Room" at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 12, in the library. This informative session will move you beyond knowing that something should be done to discovering the hidden potential of your home and your own creative ability. Julie will help participants go from inspiration to actualization, offering practical tips and affordable solutions. Learn how to recreate your living space with a dream, a plan, some paint, and a little effort this winter.

The first 2011 session of the Red Jacket Readers book club, open to everyone, will be at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 2, in the library. The group will be discussing Wilhelmina, by Mary B. Michelson. Multiple copies of this, and the other selections, are now available for check out at the library.

The book club discussion is open to the public, and refreshments will be served.

Wilhelmina paints the story of a young woman growing up in the Copper Country during the early 1900s. Born in Ishpeming in 1898, the author moved here as a young girl, graduated from Painesdale High School and went on to live most of her life in the area. Her autobiography is an unpretentious tale of family, friends, and a familiar setting.

These events are sponsored by the Friends of the Calumet Public Library. For more information, visit the library or call 337-0311 ext 1107.

(In case of bad weather, when school is canceled, all library programs are canceled.)
