June 23 – July 7, 2016
For a two-week period beginning June 23, Redford Township District Library card holders will be able to borrow the eBook, A Murder in Time by Julie McElwain, from http://tln.lib.overdrive.com and participate in a worldwide version of a local book club. There will be no waitlists for this popular mystery with a twist. Read a sample.
To succeed in school and life, children and young adults need ongoing opportunities to learn and practice essential skills. This is especially true during the summer months. We have summer reading events for every age to encourage learning over the summer. Register yourself and/or your kids starting June 27th!
Everyone in grades 4-7 is welcome to participate in our third annual Battle of the Books challenge. This program is designed to encourage the fun of reading and give recognition to those who love to read. This year’s theme is imaginary friends! Throughout the summer challengers will read:
The Coast Guard makes a daring rescue attempt off the coast of Cape Cod after a pair of oil tankers are destroyed during a blizzard in 1952.
Starring Chris Pine & Casey Affleck
Rated PG-13, 117 min.
Monday through Friday, 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
June 20 through Aug 12 (excluding July 4)
Once again, the library will be hosting the Free Summer Food Service Program. Free lunch is for children 18 years of age and under (or persons up to age 26 who are enrolled in an educational program for the mentally or physically disabled that is recognized by a State or local public educational agency). This program is sponsored by the Charter Township of Redford and the South Redford Schools. Adults may purchase a lunch for $3.50.
The library is looking for your input in our annual survey. Please take time to provide feedback on our hours, services, collections and programs so we can ensure we are adequately serving your needs. The survey will be open from June 1st - August 31st. Fill out the survey online or pick-up a paper copy at the library.
Starting June 1st, we will be holding items for 5 days instead of 7 days. This is to help decrease the amount of time a hold sits on the shelf and, in turn, have faster turnaround on items with a waitlist.
The Michigan Activity Pass 2016-2017 program and its completely revamped website is now live and ready for use! A mobile friendly version of MAP is available at the same url. Library users with a valid library card can print a pass, either from home or at the library, to more than 400 participating venues, including Michigan's seven National Parks. Some of our new partner venues include Isle Royale National Park, the Michigan Renaissance Festival, and Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore.
