…have you hugged a book today?
Now is the perfect time to get a library card and start the school year off right. Grab your new card, one of your favorite books and give them a great big hug for the camera. Have your picture hung on our special “Wall of Hugs.” Be sure to read the book from our display, HUG MACHINE by Scott Campbell, get a sticker and make some of our adorable, huggable crafts. While you are here, guess how many “hugs” are in the jar and enter our Silhouette Character Contest to win a prize chosen just for you.

We are extending a special invitation to all Redford Township teachers to come and visit the library. We will be offering tours, database demonstrations and a chance to get a special teacher’s library card. Librarians will be here to answer all of your questions, hand out a packet of information and our special teacher appreciation treats. Come visit us and see what we have to offer to help make your school year more successful and, maybe, a little less stressful. We would love to partner with you.
