College Financial Aid Workshop

Wednesday May 1, 6p.m. to 7:30p.m.

Please join us for a FREE Educational College Planning workshop that will focus on high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors. We’ll discuss the FAFSA form and all the other information you need to understand in order to maximize the amount of financial aid you are eligible to receive! Even if your family isn’t eligible for need-based aid, we will cover the best strategies on how to pay for college in the most cost effective basis – without it putting a strain on the rest of your finances. Due to the popularity of this program, RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED. Register online.  Please contact Kristen at kcarpentier@brainerdlibrary.org with any questions.


Macramé Madness

Saturday, May 4th 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Learn this retro craft and join in on the macramé craze!  We will be making a mini macramé plant holder.  All supplies will be provided, including a small plant.  This is a buddy program: parents and grandparents, older siblings, and caregivers work paired to help younger learners (ages 8 and up) complete the craft.  Please note that space is limited for this program and registration is required.  Makes a great Mother’s Day Gift!  Hurray Macra-May!


BML Has Added a Trade Paperback Section!

Trade paperbacks are larger than mass market paperbacks but smaller than hardcovers.

The size is approx. 5.5 x 8.5, with soft binding; the paper is usually of higher quality than mass-market paperbacks.

Trade paperbacks are lightweight for traveling and easy to hold.

Check out our new collection!  You may find some authors you haven’t read.

Located next to the Audio Books.


Read exciting articles on book picks, free resources, visits to libraries throughout CT, and content of interest to curious readers.  Enjoy artistic accompanying photography.
