Hazel Mackin Library column: Keep up to date with events online

As many of you have heard, the Central St. Croix News will be coming to an end. I'd like to thank Michelle for including our library column for so many years because this has been a great place to highlight our events, classes and programs every week for our community. It's been so exciting to hear how many people heard about our programs because they read it in the paper. I will still be submitting things to the New Richmond News. You can also get information from our website, Facebook or by receiving my weekly email updates. If you aren't receiving my emails now, please contact me at
