The library will once again host a poetry contest as part of this popular spring festival, this year celebrating its 10th anniversary. Entries will be judged in youth (ages 18 and younger) and adult categories. Submit your asparagus-inspired verse to the library by Monday, May 13th. Poems may be emailed to email@example.com; or sent to our mailing address - Glen Lake Community Library, PO Box 33, Empire, MI 49630; or can be dropped off at the library itself. On Saturday, May 18, at 2:00 pm in the Empire Township Hall, all verses submitted in the contest will be shared in a poetry reading. Contestants are encouraged to attend this fun gathering to present their own "Ode to Asparagus"!
Our weekly preschool program begins Thursday, September 6, at 11:00 am. These gatherings offer storytelling, music, and hands-on learning activities, and are led by early childhood education specialists Bonnie Kay and Joanne Beare. No advance registration is required - just stop in and join the fun! This is a great way for young children, and their caregivers, to discover all the library has to offer, and to get a head start on early literacy development. This program is made possible by support from the Friends of the Glen Lake Community Library.
Young readers are also invited
