More than a Library

Read and redefine! Engage and Excel! Get online and get in gear! Rock out at the Public Library!

I don’t know how else to say it… or even how much louder I could possibly shout it:

FPL Photo MuralWe’re so much MORE than just a Library!

I’ve been trying to come up with catch-phrases or mottos, all morning, that could communicate to you that, essentially: You can depend on the Library to consistently bring you interesting, exciting, engaging and insightful programming, activities, events and, yes, entertainment, on a monthly (if not, weekly) basis.

We’re a team, here! Not just a bunch of librarians glaring at you for your overdue fines or shushing at you from the entrance of the Computer Lab. We’re a team of innovative, proactive, neo-educationalists – eager to dream up new ways to engage the community by coaxing them under our (green, grassy) roof for evenings (and afternoons) of programming – from film screenings, artist lectures, rock-concerts and story-time for tots!

For example – The special Summer Concert series, that we have, kicking off on June 18th!

Soul Explosion will be performing LIVE in the Library’s Community Room:

We’d love it if you can make it in that night (6.18) -since that’s the day that the The Library of Michigan is going to be filming us as an example of “The 21st Century Library” — The Library of Michigan is partnering with the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan, CEDAM, to put together a video for theBright Side program featuring the wonderful work of libraries throughout the state. We’ll be featured! How cool is that?? Come check it out!

Anyway…

Here’s some fun book news:

Did everyone catch-up on Season 3 of HBO’s adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s epic Game of Thrones (er, Song of Fire & Ice) this week? Huffington Post is geeking out with “Greek Fire” and more: Meet the ‘Game of Thrones’ Weapons (SPOILERS)

monkA reminder – Our Summer Reading Programming kicks off this Saturday. Read all about it HERE.

JUNE 15

 

Happy 85th, Maurice. We miss you dearly…
