Continuing the Crafting Connection!

The Crafting Connection is a monthly in-person program!

Brainerd Book Club

This group is not staff-run but hosted by the library. They meet on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:30pm. The book choices are rather eclectic as they try to select from a diversity of genres. Discussion is always friendly and expansive. All are welcome to join. The library orders books in advance which can be checked out as needed. Click here for more info.
