Toddler Block Party

September 5, October 3, November 21 @ 11:00 AM

Parents and toddlers are welcome to "raise the roof" at Block Party! It may seem like just fun and games, but there is actually quite a bit of learning going on - things like problem solving, imagiation, motor and social skills, and so much more. Feel free to drop in, so sign up required; we have blocks and fun in abundance! 


Read 2 a Dog

August 15, September 10, October 1, November 5 @ 6:00 PM

Prepare for a tail wagging reading extravaganza as therapy pups Rein and Remy help us paw our way to becoming stronger, more confidant readers. It's not ruff all you have to do is sign up for one of the 15 minute sessions, grab a book, cuddle up and read! Reading to Rein and Remy can help your child gain more confidence in their reading ability and change reading from being a chore to a delight! 

Merchant Trick or Treat

October 27th, 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Merchant Trick or Treat returns! Join us for the much beloved daylight Trick or Treating event in the business district of Imlay City that takes place the Saturday before Halloween. As always, the library and its staff will be dressed to impress and ready to pass out candy! 

 

Skilled Stitches

September 6 @ 4:00 - 6:00 PM

Drop in any time between 4:00 and 6:00 for some absolute beginner sewing projects and supplies to get your sewing skills started! 

Hobbit Walk @ ATTICA BRANCH

September 22 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Thankfully our trek won't be as long as the one experienced by either Bilbo or Frodo, but the mile long, paved loop provided by the Attica Twp. Park should be the perfect ramble to get us in the spirit of the day! The walk will begin promptly at 11:10 am. Hobbit Day crafts will be ongoing in the library through out the entire event and Shire Cider, and Rings of Power (donuts), will be available upon the walkers return, around noon. Walking shoes and comfortable clothes are strongly suggested. Don't forget your pocket handkerchief, as we will not be turning back! 

Frankenfest

October 25 5:00 - 7:00 PM

Prepare to get charged over the literary world's first body builder, Frankenstein! Frankenfest is a party to celebrate all things Frankenstein, there will be lots of great things to go to pieces over like game, face painting, snacks, crafts and contests. We're sure you'll have a monstrously good time! 


Hack the Box

November 5 5:30 - 7:30 PM

Your library has teamed with local business, 123 Escape, to bring you a night of cat burglar skills. Groups of 2-4 people are welcome to sign up to test their mental strength, break into the box and rescue the treasure. It's not as easy as it sounds with codes, patterns, and hidden gizmos making the path to victory more challenging. Remember space is limited, so stop in or call 810 724-8043 to register today! 

Fantastic Buttons Crafternoon

November 15 2:45 - 6:00 PM

We've waited patiently, watched the teaser trailers, and read every snippet we could find and finally the time has come! The second installment of the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is coming to theaters November 16th. But, before you see the film, stop by the library to make a great Fantastic Beasts button to show your pride!
