Two books that tell Minnesotans more about their state than they ever knew are available - and for free.

The secretary of state's office introduced the new Minnesota Legislative Manual, better known as the Blue Book, and its student edition version. Each comes out every two years.


The two are sesquicentennial editions, celebrating the 150th birthday of the state next May.
