The Friends of the New Ulm Public Library is
partnering with Barnes & Noble on a bookfair to
benefit your library. A portion of the proceeds from
purchases made Sunday, March 9 and Monday, March 10
at the Mankato store will be donated to the Friends.
These funds are used for such things as the Summer
Reading Program and materials.
March 10 at 7 p.m., authors William Kent Krueger and
Thomas Maltman will speak and sign copies of their
books. Krueger is the author of the bestselling Cork
O'Connor series and "Ordinary Grace." Maltman is the
author of "The Night Birds" and "Little Wolves."
Shop online through March 14 and use the
Bookfair ID 11311347 at checkout, and a portion of
those sales also will benefit your library.
