Legacy Events

//Legacy Events
­

In November 2008, Minnesota voters approved a constitutional amendment to dedicate funds for Minnesota’s Outdoor Heritage, Clean Water, Parks and Trails, and Arts and Cultural Heritage. Under the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund (ACHF) Minnesota’s 300+ public libraries receive funding distributed through the Minnesota Regional Library Systems to provide programs and services in four areas: arts, culture, literary and Minnesota history.

The Arrowhead Library System and its member libraries present a variety of arts, cultural, literary, and Minnesota history programs in collaboration with arts and cultural organizations, independent artists, historical societies, and community organizations.  If you are interested in being considered for a Library Legacy program tour, please fill out our form HERE.  Please note our programming has been modified due to COVID-19.  For more information about Arrowhead Library System Legacy events and projects, contact Mollie Stanford.   For more information about statewide Legacy funding, click HERE.  To view upcoming events on our ALS calendar, click HERE.
