We have started something new here at the Ortonville Public Library. Many times patrons want to watch all the parts of a series, or want to watch all western movies. We have solved that problem. We have put 5 DVD’s in a tub for you to check out. We received the first one in today: Nicholas Sparks movies. There are 5 Nicholas Sparks movies in the box. You will be able to check the Binge Box out for one week. We have a Western one and a few others also coming. These Binge Boxes are made up of the older movies, not new releases. Try a Binge Box!

The Lost Forty crafts beautiful arrangements of rare old folk songs entwined with the history of Minnesota. Their sources and their approach celebrate two centuries of Irish musical influence on the under-explored musical traditions of the north woods. Their show includes incredible archival photos, rich regional history and colorful stories.
Come to hear some of that good old Irish music at the Ortonville Public Library on Saturday, March 23 at 2:00 p.m.
