Where can you find a book on traditional lefse recipes? Where can a 5 year old, a 15 year old, and a 55 year old all find something to read? Where can you attend a presentation to find out all about orphan trains and hobos? Where can you schedule and hold a meeting to inform the public about your spiderweb photo collection? Where can you find DVD’s, CD’s, and eBooks . . . ALL FOR FREE?

Well, it’s the St. Cloud Public Library, of course!

In today’s episode of the Untold Stories of Central Minnesota, Arts & Cultural Heritage Producer Jeff Carmack visits with Abby Faulkner of the Great River Regional Library system on the eve of their 10 year anniversary celebration of the St. Cloud branch opening.

As the central hub of the six-county regional library system, the St. Cloud Public Library has seen thousands of patrons come through its doors and has been a cultural magnet for everyone in central Minnesota. Even through the challenges of being a public space and with the electronic evolution of how people research and read, the Great River Regional Library continues achieving its mission.
