Craft program at Ramsey County Library

Ramsey County Library has been recognized as a Library Journal Star Library for the sixth consecutive year! The title is awarded to libraries based on circulation, visits per capita, program attendance, public internet usage and circulation of electronic materials.

The Ramsey County Historical Society is seeking 11 community volunteers to serve on a task force responsible for selecting and guiding local artists in creating new art for display in the Council Chambers at the Saint Paul City Hall and Ramsey County Courthouse.

The new artwork will be exhibited alongside four existing murals created from 1931-32 and address an 87-year gap in the history of our community.

Applications are due Feb. 4.
