RED WING (1862-1863)

Eric Norelius founded a school in his home at Red Wing, Minnesota in 1862.  His personal collection of books is considered the first library collection  You can view many of the books from Norelius’ personal collection here: https://www.librarything.com/catalog/FolkeB/ericnoreliuspersonallibrary.

In celebration of 50 years in the current library building (known as the Folke Bernadotte Memorial Library), we’ll be spending the year looking at the history of the library at Gustavus.
