Colors of Minnesota

The Arrowhead Library System is pleased to present “Colors of Minnesota” with Ryan J. Schroeder, a free 45-minute program being offered for ages 3-6 at 6:30 p.m. March 19 at the International Falls Public Library.

Every state has colors; people just view them differently, said a press release. Did you know that in Minnesota the color of rain is purple? Or that when Minnesotans see blue, they see a land of 10,000 lakes? Or that instead of playing Duck, Duck, Goose, kids in Minnesota play Duck, Duck, Gray Duck?

Community members are invited to join author Ryan J. Schroeder as he explores the state of Minnesota and the colors that surround us. Through a reading of his book, “Colors of Minnesota,” and a discussion as to how he chose which objects to represent which colors, his presentation will entertain and engage children as they learn more about colors and the state of Minnesota, said the release.

This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. To learn more about Arrowhead Legacy Events, visit
