Are you a writer? Do you dream of the day when you finally complete your book? Do grammatical errors on restaurant menus make you want to scream? If your answer is yes, the Rochester MN Writing Group may be a good fit for you.

Writing workshops and revisions occur every second Tuesday of the month at Rochester Public Library. The group also meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month for an informal, coffee shop meeting.

Led by published author, Mike Kalmbach, the group welcomes all writers. Most genres are accepted for critique (excluding erotica and extreme violence). For details and to join the group, contact Mike at mikekalmbach@gmail.com.

Donations go a long way

by Andy Seifert

Have any books you’d like to donate? How about cans of food?

Throughout February, the Friends of the Library Bookstore is collecting non-perishable food items for Channel One. If you donate a food item, you will receive 20% off your total purchase from the bookstore.

Book donations can be placed in a receptacle near our back entrance. Abraham Lincoln once said, “My best friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read.” Your donations make new book discoveries possible.

Book donations can be placed within the receptacle located near the store's back entrance.
