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 an array 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 provides us insight on the range of topics that a library can offer.
Consider taking your favorite older relative with you to enjoy the activities.
In Rochester, stop by the Rochester Hills Library. Located just north of the center of Rochester, the library is hosting a number of events, including a couple on Thursday, the 17th.
- One is a book discussion ("Between the Lines"). It starts at 7pm. The session is led by a library staff member.
- A second option is an ESL Conversation Group, also starting at 7pm. This is a chance for newcomers to our country to practice their English in a relaxed setting.
Registration is required for both events. Contact the library at 248-656-2900 or visit the web site at www.rhpl.org. By the way, this is one of the nicest library facilities you'll find in this area.
Note that most libraries in the state will be closed on April 18th in observance of Good Friday.
