Teen Summer Reading 2017

Sign up starts on Tuesday, June 6 at the Adult Reference Desk. 


For each book you read, write in the date the book was completed, the book title, the book author, and the number of pages read on your reading log.  Be sure to check in every couple weeks at the Adult Reference Desk to have a librarian initial your log and update your progress for our records. 

For every 100 pages you read, you are entered for a chance to win gift cards and a brand new Kindle Fire!  The teen who reads the most pages wins a $10 Barnes and Nobles gift card.  When you register you will also receive a chance to guess the number of candy pieces in our candy jar, and the closest guess without going over wins the entire jar!   

Reading logs need to be turned at the Adult Reference Desk by Saturday, July 29th at 4:45pm. 

Programs:

Henna Tattoos
Friday, June 16, 2-4pm

Henna is a natural dye that temporarily stains the skin; tattoos last anywhere from 1-3 weeks!


Upcycled Planters
Wednesday, June 28, 2-4pm
Using recycled objects, craft materials, and some pictures for inspiration, we will be making planters that will be perfect for houseplants.  Those that sign up ahead of time will also receive a plant to put in their new planter.

Project Linus Blankets
Wednesday, July 19, 2-4pm
Project Linus is an organization that supplies children who are ill, traumatized, or in need with handmade blankets.   For this program we will be making No-Sew Fleece Blankets to donate to the local chapter. After the blankets are done refreshments will be served. 



To register for any or all of these programs, sign up at the adult reference desk or call (734) 721-7832, ext. 630.

ATTENTION: Change In Library Parking

Effective today, the library’s designated parking area has been changed from the parking structure on Michigan Avenue to the parking lot next to the structure. The parking structure is closed, and unavailable for patron use. The parking lot is not accessible from Veterans Plaza Parkway. The only entrance is on Michigan Avenue. See the attached map. The lot is circled in red, with its entrance indicated by a green arrow.



You can also view the location on Google Maps.

From Library Director Steve McGladdery: 
We apologize for the inconvenience regarding the parking structure. The structure, as part of city property, has been closed by order of city hall due to recent increased acts of vandalism. It will remain closed while options are considered to deal with the problem. Further questions should be directed to city hall.
