CALUMET -- The Calumet Library regrets to announce that the program, "Red Rocks and Ancient Cultures: Parks of the Great American Southwest," presented by Mike Pflaum, Keweenaw National Historical Park Superintendent and scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 2, has been cancelled. The library will reschedule it at a future date.

Friends of Calumet Library to meet Oct. 8

The regular monthly meeting of the Friends of the Calumet Library will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8, in the library.

This is an open meeting, and the group welcomes new members and new ideas. 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 at the Calumet Public Library. Meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. in the library. Mark your calendar!

Oct. 16: Songs of 1913-1914 by the 1913 Singers

The 1913 Singers will present "Don’t Go Mine Down in the Mine, Dad" -- Songs of 1913-1914 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at the CLK Commons with a reception to follow in the library. 

Music has been a steadfast part of the cultural fabric of the Keweenaw, binding concerns of family, church, politics, and work. "Don’t Go Mine Down in the Mine, Dad" -- Songs of 1913-14 will bring the audience not only local songs from the 1913-14 copper strike, but will include other thought-provoking favorites of the period. Join the 1913 Singers as they transport you back a hundred years or more via a magic lantern show of projected images and live music reflecting the period.

Use the library entrance at the school, and follow signs directing you to the Commons. All ages are welcome!

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 cancelled, all library programs are cancelled.)
