Lunar eclipse tonight

If any of you happen to be awake at 1:30am tonight make sure to look up at the sky: tonight the Earth's shadow will cover the moon, creating a lunar eclipse.  The moon will still be visible but will appear red as a result of the indirect light shining off of it.  Neat, eh?

Food for Fines: Week 4

We are rolling right along with food donations for Gleaners Food Bank. We have more than we can count at this point, but current estimates have us at 1500 food items and over $1600 in forgiven fines. We should break 2000 food items, no problem. Thank you so much, Westland and patrons from surrounding communities! You've done us all proud. 

We have 8 more days of this program, so if you haven't taken advantage of it yet or would like to donate food to a good cause, stop by the library anytime during our operating hours (Mon-Thur, 9-9; Fri-Sat, 9-5; Sun, 12-5). Happy holidays to all!
