Libraries hold a central place in our communities. Even in our day and age, they reinvent themselves and cater to a wide range of ages, interests and tastes. Books, reference material, movies and music - all can be found at your local library. Knowledgeable professionals are there to help answer a wide range of questions.
In April, National Library Week is taking place during the week of the 13th. Most libraries have programs available for patrons year round, but the Library Week offers us insight on the range of topics that a library can offer. Consider taking your favorite senior with you to enjoy the activities!
The main branch of the Farmington Hills Library is located at 32737 W. 12 Mile Road, just west of Orchard Lake Road. The home page of their web site has a long list of upcoming events. At this time, the schedule lists events through the first week of May. Focusing on events taking place during Library Week:
- "Beyond Point and Click" takes place on the afternoon of the 16th.
- On the 17th, a course for knitters is available "Fiber Fans: Knitters and Spinners". Learn how to knit, crochet or spin, or pick up a new project. This class is scheduled to start at 6pm.
Call the library at 248-553-0300 or visit the web site at www.farmlib.org for more details.
Note that most libraries in the state will be closed on April 18th in observance of Good Friday.
