The Sutter Brothers

Sutter Brothers Program

The Sutter Brothers, a duo with ties to southwestern Minnesota, will tour a show that conjures north country characters in songs and stories, poetry and music for the Plum Creek Regional Library System from October 11th through 19th. Performances are free and open to the public.

For thirty years, The Sutter Brothers have presented lively programs that emphasize their rural, small-town roots and Scandinavian heritage. Blending Bart’s original poems with Ross’ arrangements of folk songs and tunes, The Sutter Brothers evoke the landscape, critters, and quirky characters of rural Minnesota, spanning the spectrum of human experience from comedy to tragedy.

Getting Started Guide

eBooks MN

Ebooks Minnesota, an online ebook collection spearheaded by Minnesota’s libraries, is open to Minnesota readers. The collection is accessible online at and via free apps from iTunes, Google Play, and Kindle. There is no charge to libraries or individuals who wish to use the collection, and no username or password is required. Ebooks Minnesota is open to all readers within Minnesota’s borders.

No process is required to “check out” a book. Readers can access any book in the collection at any time regardless of how many other readers are also using that book. This feature makes the collection particularly useful for schools that may wish to assign a single book to an entire class or even an entire school. Likewise, community book clubs, no matter how large, can read books together without worrying about checkout limits or due dates.

The collection contains more than 2,000 books, including titles from these Minnesota publishers: ABDO, Lerner Publishing Group, Cherry Lake Publishing, University of Minnesota Press, Milkweed Press, and Coffeehouse Press. Nonfiction titles from Arcadia Publishing about Minnesota and its history are also included in the collection. A selection of popular titles that are in the public domain, such as "Dracula." and “Jane Eyre,” completes the collection.
