We are pleased to announce that we will be participating in a national reading project through a grant to the Carlton County Historical Society for a county wide reading program. The Big Read is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and Arts Midwest and is designed to restore reading to the center of American culture. The book we have selected for Carlton County is "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. Further information about the book may be found at http://www.neabigread.org/books/mockingbird/
We invite you to start reading the book now and look for upcoming information about how to participate in our Big Read. We are planning some exciting activities for later this fall. For more information, contact Mary at the Cloquet Public Library, 879-1531 or Anne at the Carlton County Historical Society, 879-1938 or http://www.neabigread.org/.
