Week 20: It’s Pop, Not Soda

Come try out some “pop shot” samples of different Faygo flavors along with other Michigan-based treats at this fun, free program open to all ages!

Everything is starting to get a bit bubbly in here! We are prepping for our big presentation on Wednesday, May 15 with author Joe Grimm and his newest release, The Faygo Book! The presentation starts at 6:00pm in the lower level meeting room and we will be featuring “pop shots” of five different Faygo flavors, as well as some other Michigan-based treats. Copies of The Faygo Book will be available to purchase, so be sure to join us for a popping good time! While you are more than welcome to borrow the library’s copy, trust us. You will want a copy of this excellent book for any Detroit/Michigan history enthusiast!

This Week

In preparation for our yearly big Book Sale, the last day to turn in donations will be this Friday, May 17th. All donations must be in by 4:45pm. If you miss the cut off, be sure to hold on to your donations until the end of June when we start collecting again!

Also this Friday, we will have our monthly Movie Afternoon for Adults. This month’s feature is Bridge on the River Kwai. The 1957 film stars William Holden, Alec Guinness, and Jack Hawkins, and is rated PG. While the viewing and popcorn are free, please no children. Thank you.
