Sesquicentennial Banner in Arrowhead Libraries

May 18, 2007

Arrowhead Library SystemThank you to Jim Weikum, Director of the Arrowhead Library System, for sending us the following update on the progress of the Sesquicentennial Banner on its voyage across Minnesota…

I thought that you might want to know that on Monday evening the Sesquicentennial banner I brought back here with me was unveiled (unfurled?) at the 41st Annual Meeting of the Arrowhead Library System. The first two people to sign the journal were Dr. Loriene Roy, the incoming President of the American Library Association (she is a Carlton, MN native, professor at the University of Texas in Austin, and a member of the White Earth band) and Suzanne Miller, State Librarian for Minnesota. Today the banner is on the ALS bookmobile visiting communities in Itasca County including Trout Lake, Deer River, Swan River, Pengilly, and Nashwauk. We’re putting together a schedule for the banner to visit all or most of our 29 member public library communities spread across the 17,000 square mile service area of ALS.
