We’re thrilled to announce a new session of fall classes for youth and adults in collaboration with Caledonia Public Library and Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts! This round of classes is very flexible to fit into everyone’s changing schedules.
Youth ages 7-12 will flex their creative muscles with free art kits and weekly surprise art projects in Surprise Art Program.
Youth & adults ages 13+ can join in for a completely self-paced guided Houston County: Playful Postcards class.
All participants will receive access to a series of short yoga classes for youth and adults from Mainspring.
All of these programs are FREE — but registration is required. Please follow the event links for registration and more info!
This project is made possible with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund and the people of Minnesota for Library Legacy activities.

As part of my internship, I design my own programs for the summer. One each month, so 3 in all. On June 27th, I had my first event of the summer. As a 4-Her myself, I know a lot of people with different farm animals around the county. So, I decided to ask different people to bring in their animals for the event. There was a steer calf, a miniature horse, two sheep, two rabbits, and a goat.
All animals were well trained so the kids could easily pet them without worrying about getting hurt. The event was even more successful than I ever expected. Around 300 kids and adults alike came to Gazebo Park for the event! That was the most ever for events at the library! Thank you to everyone who provided animals for the event and to the city for letting us use the park!
The second event I helped plan for my internship was the Book-to-Movie Club. The first story we focused on was The Lorax. The first week there were 6 kids that came and heard The Lorax book. They also did various activities afterwards that had to do with the story. They made a Lorax craft, built truffula trees out of legos, answered questions about the story, and planted their own plants. Then the following week the SAC program brought around 30 kids to the movie week. Everyone gathered around the screen and watched the movie. Overall it was a successful couple of weeks for the library!
