Be honest, when's the last time you stopped at your local library? Do you know Muskegon Area District Library (MADL) has 10 branches throughout the county? From Holton to Ravenna, and Montague to Norton Shores, even a branch for the blind and physically handicapped on Airline Road. I have to admit I am one of them that don't stop by the library enough. But my "losing streak" ended last Thursday when the Norton Shore Branch was having their Thursday night music club featuring Shout! - a premier Michigan Beatles cover band. Due to the weather they moved the event from the Library to Mona Shore High School's auditorium, let's take a look at that rocking place.

The library business sure has evolved with time. Besides books, movies, and CD you can physically check out, they also provide downloadable books and music. Aside from that, they also host many different events at all the different branch for all different ages. From Story Time for toddlers, Lego club, after school movie, family fun night, Bow Wow Readers (a children read aloud program with certified therapy dogs and handler), Create on Canvas, to Stretch and More with certified trainer with the Arthritis Foundation. Everything I have mentioned is just a fraction all the events and programs MADL offers in their 10 different branches. Let's take a look at some of the highlight from their news letter.
Sounds pretty exciting right? You really should stop at your local library, get a news letter and check out what's happening. Fine, I'll save you some running around even though I strongly recommend the aforementioned, you can also visit http://www.madl.org to learn more, or here is a direct link to their falls newsletter in PDF.
