The Brown Bag Author Events have been a part of The Friends of the Brainerd Public Library for over 20 years!  Currently, a Minnesota author speaks at the Library every first Monday of the month (exception of holidays), and EVERY Monday in June and July for our Summer Author program.
Join us from noon to 1:00 pm in the large meeting room for this free event sponsored by your Friends of the Brainerd Public Library and feel free to bring your lunch! 
Join us!

Join us on Mondays in June and July EACH WEEK  at noon on The Friends on the Brainerd Public Library Facebook page.  Our Authors will speak LIVE on our page and you can watch from the comfort of your home and gather with friends to tune in.  You will be able to type in questions and correspond with the Author. We appreciate all of you so much as well as our incredible authors.​
