Etched in Stone with Liz Rackl

Diamonds are brilliant, but no where near as dazzling as the beautiful designs they cut into granite.

Liz Rackl

Join us at Meinders Community Library as we welcome local artist Liz Rackl and her beautiful granite etchings.

At 6:30pm on Monday, April 9, Liz will share her artistic journey and demonstrate how granite can become a canvas. Aided by a diamond cutter and an intense love of nature, Liz has used her Southwest Minnesota Arts and Humanities Council Legacy Grant to open up a whole new world of creative expression and art appreciation.

If you love beautiful things, want to explore a new craft, or are simply interested in the unique and talented individuals in Southwestern Minnesota, please stop by the library for this one-of-a-kind program.

In addition to the extended weather advisory, our internet and phone lines are down.

There is no need to venture out to return materials, as we will forgive fines for all items due this weekend that are not returned until Monday.

Please stay safe and warm on this blustery spring day.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

Antique Appraisal at Meinders

10:00am to 1:00pm Saturday, March 24

Appraiser and Antiques Expert, Mark Moran, will be assessing community treasures at Meinders Library this Saturday. While all our slots have been filled, spectators are welcome to drop in or stay for the entire program.

We have some wonderful and intriguing items for Mark to appraise, ranging from wooden golf clubs to a spittoon to an invitation to a president’s inauguration, and everything in between.

Though there has been some concern about the weather on Saturday, the latest report indicates that Mother Nature might give us a pass on her latest storm. However, in the event of inclement weather, we will post cancellation information on our blog and facebook page, as well as contacting the radio and newspaper. Individuals may also call the library for details.

This program is sponsored by the Plum Creek Library System through the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage foundation, and the Pipestone Area Friends of the Library.
