The Royal Oak Public Library has developed a strategic plan for 2009-2013 based on community needs and values and informed by progressive library practices across the nation.
One-State, One-Children’s Book for 2013 is Woolbur written by Leslie Helakoski and illustrated by Lee Harper. Michigan Reads!, presented by the Library of Michigan features a book that promotes early childhood literacy. It encourages family bonding through reading. This year’s book selection features Woolbur, a very active lamb who finds original ways to accomplish everyday tasks. The story, the language, the joyfulness of Woolbur’s actions makes Woolbur a “go to” book for both children and older readers as they go about their own activities. Woolbur will be featured during our preschool story times during a week in September. A copy of Woolbur will be available to read at the library during September, so take a few moments to pause and share it with your children or grandchildren.
New venue this year! Arts Du Jour, the Charity Preview Party for Ford Arts, Beats and Eats will be held at the Royal Oak Public Library and the Barbara Hallman Memorial Plaza (the green space south of the Library) on Thursday, August 22 from 6:30 – 10:00 pm. The Library benefits from general admission tickets purchased at the library for this event. Tickets are on sale at the Library’s circulation desk for $65 (credit cards are accepted). Ticket holders are entitled to a sampling of food from over 50 restaurants, musical entertainment at two stages, and three cocktail vouchers. Doors open at 6:30 pm. The Library receives 100% of the ticket price as a charitable contribution for tickets purchased at the Library. The Library will be closed at 4:30 pm. Contact Mary Karshner, Library Director, at 248-246-3710, if you have questions. Hope to see you at Arts Du Jour!
