Library To Re-Open on Fridays
Ferndale citizens went to the polls on August 2nd and voted in support of replacing the Ferndale Area District Library’s millage for 10 years more, to restore services and boost budgets for materials that had been reduced or cut in 2014.
This means that the Library’s Board of Trustees’ initial plan to restore and increase hours of operation can begin to go into effect.
On Sept 9, we will RE-OPEN on Fridays (10am-6pm).
We’ll be celebrating all day on that First Friday with a special outdoor carnival at 4pm.
Meanwhile, we are working our way towards being open on Sundays somewhere down the line, so stay tuned. Meanwhile, along with the increased funding, the Ferndale Library will also be upgrading the public computer workstations in both the adult lab and Kids Corner, ordering more on-demand digital resources (like eBooks, Audiobooks and online learning tools) and organizing more literacy programs for K-12th grade readers.
Late Summer/Autumn Hours
Mon – Thurs: 10am-8pm
Fri: 10am – 6pm
Sat: 12pm – 5pm
Friday Carnival on Sept 9
We’re encouraging everyone to stop in and see us on Sept 9 for a‘First Friday’ Carnival: an assortment of casual festivities like live music, activities, refreshments and an exclusive reading by local author Josh Malerman of one of his new scary stories.
10 am & 4 pm – Free Door Prizes for anyone who comes in(while supplies last)
4:00 pm – 6 pm – Courtyard Carnival
Ice Cream from Treat Dreams! Plus: Live music, Bean Bag Toss games, Giant Jenga, Popcorn, Sidewalk Chalk, a Juggler and Birdbox author Josh Malerman (pictured), reading a brand new short story
We’re also be offering amnesty on overdue fines for any item returned Sept 9-Sept 17. However, this amnesty will not be applied to fines already accrued for previously/recently returned items. But, if you’ve been dreading a return to the library because of a massively-overdue book or movie, this will be the week to come in…particularly on the 9th!
