Meeting Room A

Learn what it's like to be a musher - meet three-time participant in the 1000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race, Karen Land, and her Alaskan husky, Noggin! Space is limited, registration is a must.

What does it feel like to ride the runners behind a team of dogs, steering a loaded sled through mountainous terrain? What is it like to navigate the vast Alaskan tundra, hugging the shoreline of the great Bering Sea? How much work is it to care for a team of Alaskan huskies? Could my dog become a sled dog, too?

Musher, Karen Land, will answer these questions and more when she and Noggin, her Alaskan husky, visit the Highland Library!

Land is a writer, public speaker, and three-time participant in the 1000-mile Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race. She has also raced in many other sprint and endurance races in Alaska, Canada, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Maine.

Since 2000, Land has traveled to nearly every state with her Iditarod dog sled, mushing gear, Arctic clothing, and beloved dogs, giving over a thousand school and public library presentations.

Space is limited, registration is a must. Please register every adult, teen and child planning to attend.

About the branch

The Highland Branch Library has long played an important role in downtown Highland. From its beginnings in rented storefronts to the Highland Memorial Library built in 1946 to its present location on Jewett and 4th Street, it has been an integral part of the community. The exterior of the library looks nearly as it did when it was first built in 1966. Although it is one of the oldest buildings in the library system, it's newly remodeled interior makes it one of the newest. The library still houses over 65,000 items, but now also features a large meeting room and children's program room, a small group room, and WiFi, along with many public Internet computers. These features, along with the library's bright and inviting atmosphere and convenient location, make the Highland Branch Library a destination for the community and surrounding areas.
