Big day tomorrow at the library:

  • 11am-3pm: Help us set up and sign up for the Summer Reading Program
  • 3:30: Friends of the Library Annual Meeting.  We need a good turnout for a quorum and to plan for the future so please show up if you’re a Friend.

A note from Library Trustee Jim O’Donnell:


You are cordially invited to a community reception for Library Director Candidate Kate Pohjola, to be held at the library at 7:00 PM on June 14th. Come with questions to ask her or just say hello. Do come with a light appetite, as light refreshments will be served. Please see the flyer for more information.

You are, of course, invited to stay for the library board’s second interview with Ms. Pohjola.
Jim O’Donnell
Library Trustee

In the last year we’ve opened a new library, survived a flood, reopened an even newer library, built a Friend’s store from scratch (twice), helped with a dozen library events, and supported library efforts at all levels.

One year after last year’s successful “reboot,” join us to celebrate the Friends’ successes, see friends, plan for the future, and vote in new officers at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 18 in the Library’s Community Room, 222 E. Nine Mile.

A nominating committee is preparing a list of candidates for the board positions.  We will be looking to our members for a new president and treasurer.  If you are interested in these positions or any other opportunities to get involved with the Friends’ board, please contact nominations committee chair Bridget Deegan-Krause at bridgetmail {at] gmail [dot} com.
