Have you seen the Red Wing Fireboat? It’s a functional thing of beauty.  Combing speed and engineering prowess with live-saving ability, the Fireboat holds a special place in the imagination of those who see it.  It also makes a wonderful subject to photograph.  The drama of the machine against the water with Red Wing in the backdrop is a pretty lens-worthy subject.  The Fire Department will be launching the boat at Bay Point Park on Thursday, July 20 at 7 pm, and they invite the public to attend the launch and enjoy a photo-taking opportunity of the Fireboat in action.

No single library could possibly contain every item that every person could want.  For this reasons, libraries often team up with others to share items.  One library may carry an excellent collection of non-fiction, while another may have an unrivaled romance collection, so they will share the items between their two libraries.  Our Red Wing Public Library is a member of such a partnership, one of twenty-eight libraries across southeastern Minnesota collectively referred to as SELCO (Southeastern Libraries Cooperating).  The SELCO system encompasses 11 counties including public, academic, …
