We are so thrilled to host local children’s author Johnathan Rand for an hour-long presentation on September 22 at 6 p.m. Johnathan Rand, the pen name of Christopher Wright, has written dozens of horror fiction books for children and young adults. He is the author of popular series such as Michigan Chillers, American Chillers, and Freddie Fernortner. Get in the spooky spirit with us on the first day of autumn! Seating will be limited due to Covid regulations, so secure your spot by signing up here. Walk-ins are welcome, but those who sign up before the event will be considered first priority for seating; walk-ins may have to stand through the presentation.

Mark your calendars for Tuesday evening on Oct. 12th from 6-7 p.m. for a fun and interactive event in collaboration with Inland Lakes Schools! A craft will be available at 6 p.m. within the library and we are hosting Principal Jennifer Perrault as our trusty reader for a story at 6:30 p.m. Make sure to stop in for this exciting event!
