2nd Annual Hobbit Walk @ ATTICA TWP. PARK

Saturday, September 21 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM

Let’s celebrate Hobbits, the merry, steadfast, short-statured characters created by J.R.R. Tolkien. In honor of the six month trek endured by Frodo and Samwise, wear your Hobbit finery and join us for a mile long meander around the paved pathway at the Attica Township Park. Afterward, we’ll return to our library “Hobbit hole” for crafts and snacks, and we’ll wrap up with a special sword demonstration by Brendon Kreiner of the MSU Extension Office at 12:30, to really get us in the battle spirit!

Home; Safe & Confident

Saturday, September 28, 11:30 - 2:00 PM

Staying at home for the first time is a big milestone in a child’s life, but sometimes there can be anxious moments about all the things that could happen. Well, set those fears aside! Your library is joining forces with the Lapeer County EMS and the Imlay City Fire and Police Departments to talk about some of these possibilities and give you the confidence to deal with things if the worst should happen. Kids in 4th, 5th, or 6th grades are welcome (parents are too) and lunch will be provided. Please sign up by stopping in or calling 810-724-8043.

Pumpkin Decorating Contest

October 1 - 30

Forget the mess, decorate it best: that’s our thoughts on pumpkin decorating, here at the library!

The winner gets a fresh baked pumpkin pie from the Achatz Pie Company in Armada; winners will be notified on Halloween!
