Calle SurLive Latin Music by Calle Sur on Aug 13th

Visit the library on Wednesday, August 13th at 3:00pm to hear the band Calle Sur in a concert performance in the auditorium. They are "what happens when you combine man and woman, Black and White, urban and rural."

The drumming will make you jump to your feet and you will sway to the samba on guitar. Hear a mean 6/8 beat on the Venezuelan cuatro and groove to the Bolivian panpipes. Music ranges in style from guajira and jazz to bossa nova and salsa tunes - and that's just the beginning!


Online Driving and Motorcycle Test Practice exams now available

If you want to practice for your written Minnesota Driving Permit test, the library now has free online access to a website that will allow you to take several different practice tests to prepare for the real thing.

There is also a section for the Motorcycle test and some handy links to the Minnesota Driver's Handbook and the MN Motorcycle Guide. Try it out today!
