Now that summer is almost here, are you looking for a fun opportunity
to connect with other booklovers, to boost your program/curriculum development,
and to obtain up to 25 CEU’s??!
Arrowhead Library System is happy to host a Camp Read-A-Lot on Friday,
August 8, 2014 at Giants Ridge
Resort in Biwabik, MN! This day-long
event will run from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
library staff, school media staff and teachers working with youth in grades
