Yack & Yarn Group
Selected Wednesdays @ 6:00 pm
The Yack and Yarn Group meets every other Wednesday at 6:00 pm. Bring projects you are working on or those you are having trouble with: maybe we can help! Remaining fall meeting dates are November 6 & 20. Winter dates are December 4 & 18, January 8 & 22, and February 5 & 19.
Join us for Storytime, our beloved times of the week where stories are shared, songs are sung, ASL is learned, friendships are made, and silliness happens! Check the calendar or the Children's tab on the website for dates, times, and themes.

Imlay City Winter Playground
December 7, 5:00 - 8:00 PM
“Santa Claus is comin’ to town” and Downtown Imlay City is once again ready to receive him in style! Celebrated on Saturday this year for busy families, the fun will begin at 5:00 PM; the parade will roll out at 6:00 followed immediately by the tree lighting. Businesses will be staying open late for last minute shopping and fun activities. Don’t forget to stop by the library to write your letter to Santa!
Warm Up & Write! Letters to Santa
December 7, 5:00 - 8:00 PM
Regardless of whether you’ve been “naughty” or “nice” this year, everyone is welcome to write a letter to Santa during the annual Imlay City Winter Playground. Imlay City’s own Post Master and her elves will be on hand to join the fun and give us a few clues about how all those letters make it to the North Pole. We'll also have cocoa and cookies, and a cozy place to warm up!
Christmas Story Nite
December 23 @ 6:00 PM
As the Grinch said, “Tomorrow is Christmas, it’s practically here!” So let’s curl up and read a few Christmas favorites, both new and old, and feel the joy of the season with some Christmas tunes. Afterwards we’ll channel some holiday magic into a few crafts- of course you have room for more decorations!
Poinsettia Pens Crafternoon: for Tweens & Teens
December 12 @ 4:00 PM
Let’s celebrate National Poinsettia Day by creating a gift that is simple to make and stunning to look at! Using just a pen and different types of tape we will make a completely one-of-a-kind item perfect for giving… or keeping. All supplies are provided but limited so stop in or call 810-724-8043 to save your place.
