Another Successful Food for Fines program!

Thanks to everyone who participated in our annual Food for Fines program, benefiting families in need in Southeastern Michigan. We collected 1,398 pounds of food and forgave over $2,000 in fines. We are truly grateful for your support and glad to see so many people able to use the library again! The food items we collected went to Gleaners Community Food Bank and St. Mary's Outreach Center.

We are happy to announce a new and improved events calendar system called Evanced. This system will allow you to view events from all departments on one calendar, to register for library programs online, or to receive email or text notifications of upcoming events. You can check out the new calendar here or access it from the Events, Kids, and Teen menus above.

If you have any questions about our new calendar system, please speak to library staff at the Reference or Youth Services desk. Thanks to the Friends of the Library for their support!
