Breckenridge Public Library added an event.

All families who have participated, or are currently participating in the 1,000 Books before Kindergarten program are invited to a special celebration where we will recognize finishers and provide encouragement for those still participating.

This will be a fun opportunity to meet the library’s mascot, Booker the Owl, and take a photo together. We will also be giving out some free books.

There will be juice and cookies, as well as a fun craft. Bring your canvas book bag or a plain shirt to decorate!

If you haven't yet signed up to participate, visit www.larl.org/1000Books or stop in to the library and we'd be glad to get you started.

L Celeste TwardowskiDo you have information on prominent Breckenridge citizen from the 1800’s Tinsmith Louis Gewalt. I believe he also ran a hardware store and was a prominent citizen. Thank you for any information you might share with me.

Breckenridge Public LibraryHello! I did find some information on Mr. Gewalt. Here is a link to a digitized copy of a book featuring bios on individuals from Central and Northern Minnesota. books.google.com/books?id=HUc4AQAAMAAJ&pg=PA414&lpg=PA414&dq=breckenridge+MN+Louis+Gewalt+tinsmit...

Breckenridge Public LibraryIf you come into the library we can also use Ancestry.com to provide you with a copy of his U.S. passport application from March 4, 1907, which is pretty neat. If you are looking for more biographical info, a second resource I would recommend is our wonderful Wilkin County Historical Society. The Museum is across the street from the library, and open during the winter by appointment. Please let us know if we can provide more assistance.
