E. Davis shared with the board a Village Theater program for the upcoming season in which the library has once again purchased advertising.
Davis acknowledged the presence in the audience of Friends of the Library Secretary John Spencer; in July, the Friends’ bookstore, Secondhand Prose, sold approximately $7,300 worth of used books and other materials. The bookstore will now be open on the Sunday of the monthly Bag Sale weekend.
September is National Library Card Sign Up Month; a letter to the editor from Davis as well as an editorial appeared in the local edition of the Observer newspaper.
The annual Stuff the Truck event with the Detroit Diaper Bank will be held November 20-21; the organization will partner with the library to hold a 5th birthday party in April 2014.
