The St. Peter Public Library has been selected as one of 35 libraries nationwide to take part in the Great Stories Club, a reading and discussion program for teens. This competitive grant is offered by the American Library Association (ALA) with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

As part of the Great Stories Club series on Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation, staff from the St. Peter Public Library, along with help from the St. Peter School District will work with teens to read and discuss stories that explore questions of race, equity, identity, history, institutional change and social justice.
