WHAT'S HAPPENING AT YOUR LIBRARY......  

AUTHOR VISIT

Join us on Thursday September 29 at 7pm to listen to Barbara Bull, local author and owner of Cherry Point Farm and Market in Oceana County.  Barbara has written multiple books, including A Point of View:  Blackberry Ridge 1871-1884, which chronicles a series of writings by Charles W. Jay and offers the reader a rare glimpse of 19th century life along Blackberry Ridge, the current location of Cherry Point Farm and Market.  Books will be available for purchase and refreshments will be served. 

LIBRARY PATRON SURVEY

Patron suggestions are the most important resource we have in determining what materials and services to offer at the Library.  This survey will give you the opportunity to make valuable and specific suggestions to us.  Thank you for your time!
