'Colors of Minnesota'

• Friday, March 15, 1 p.m. Silver Bay Public Library.

• Wednesday, March 27, 4 p.m. Two Harbors Public Library.

Every state has colors; people just view them differently. Did you know that in Minnesota the color of rain is purple? Or that when Minnesotans see blue, they see a land of 10,000 lakes? Or that instead of playing "Duck, Duck, Goose," kids in Minnesota play "Duck, Duck, Gray Duck?"

Join author Ryan J. Schroeder as he explores the state of Minnesota and the colors that surround us. Through a reading of his book, "Colors of Minnesota," and a discussion as to how he chose which objects to represent which colors, his presentation will entertain and engage children as they learn more about colors and Minnesota.

Geared toward children ages 3-6.

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
