This week, May 5th-11th is Screen-Free Week. Presented by the Campaign for a Commercial-Free Childhood, Screen-Free Week encourages families to spend a week without entertainment screen media--i.e. no TV watching, video game playing or internet surfing for entertainment's sake. Instead families spend the week doing things together, being creative and getting active. Want to participate? There are ideas on the official Screen-Free Week website, or Canton Public Library has lots of resources to help you think of fun things to do.

May is Michigan Month! One of Michigan's greatest treasure is the Detroit Institute of Arts. To celebrate the DIA we are hosting a talk about their newest exhibit, Samurai: Beyond the Sword, which runs through Sunday, June 1. This is a rare opportunity to experience the world of the Japanese Samurai. Moving beyond the stereotype of the warrior, the exhibition explores the role of the military arts and the importance of Samurai engagement in the cultural, spiritual and art worlds of their time. Join us on Saturday, May 10 from 2:00-3:00 PM as we discuss the origins of the Samurai culture and the fascinating pieces in the DIA's exhibit.
