We so appreciate you thinking of the Library with your memorials. With memorials totaling $50.00, a plaque in that person’s name is added to our memorial board. We purchase large print books with the donations. Memorials received recently are: In memory of Gary Paulsen from Russ and Pam Walcker, Howie and Bobbie Underwood, Bill and Carolyn Paulsen and Jennifer Braaten. In memory of Tom Griffen from Underwoods, in memory of Darlyne Wileman from Carolyn Paulsen, in memory of Ruth Fruend from Russ and Pam Walcker, in memory of Merle Mehus from Linda Bergenheier, in memory of Boyd Nerdahl  from Jennifer Braaten, in memory of Johnnie Oliver from Underwoods and in honor of Bill and Carolyn Paulsen’s 50th Anniversary from Russ and Pam Walcker. Thank you everyone

We have been working on what we call the resource room, adding all of those books to our inventory. In case you don’t know, in that room we have many biographies and autobiographies, filed by subject. If you want to read about Dolly Parton, we have the book, along with many, many others. Also in the resource room we have political books, science fiction, many westerns (both fiction and non-fiction), War books categorized by war, both fiction and non-fiction, North Dakota books, travel books and many others. Visit the resource room and take a look.

New books to the library are:
