  • Toddler Block Party

    October 25 & November 22, 11:00 AM

    Did you know that your preschoolers "build" important skills through block play? These are skills that will serve them later in life, like problem solving, motor abilities, spatial sense, mathematical reasoning, and imagination. Come join the fun (and the secret learning) at our Block Party; we have blocks and fun in abundance!

    Want to be a 3D designer? Then sign up for our 3D Design Class for Kids! Participants can design a small object on graph paper, and library staff will convert and print the object for later pickup. Registration and parent attendance are required; space is limited to 20 children, ages 7 and up.

    (For those who would like to see the 3D printer in action, stop by our Demo Days, October 18 from 2:00 - 4:00 PM and October 26 from 5:00 - 7:00 PM. The 3D printer is here on a two - month loan from our library cooperative.)

  • Attica Drop Box Repairs

    October 27 - 28

    The Attica branch return box will be removed for needed repairs Thursday, October 27 - Friday, October 28.

    We are very sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. The branch library will be open for returns Thursday from 2:00 - 7:00 PM, and Friday from 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM. Items may also be returned anytime to the book return slot located near the front door at the Imlay City branch.

    Please contact the library at 810-724-8043 if you need further assistance. We will be happy to assist with renewing items and preventing fines accruing on items due to the drop box absence.
