Pure Michigan Travel Site

Earlier this week, the award-winning Pure Michigan campaign was on the brink of dying due to a lack of government funding. Travel Michigan vice president called for quick action, saying that if funding wasn’t resolved by today, Pure Michigan would not run its winter campaign.

A Great Group Makes For A Great Book Club

I have the pleasure of working with a fantastic group of young adults at the Starkweather Alternative High School. The Canton Public Library in cooperation with Starkweather was awarded an ALA Great Stories Club Grant last year. The book club was such a success last year we decided to continue meeting. We are currently reading Unwind by Neil Shusterman. It is proving to be a popular selection. If you haven't read this book, both the book club and I suggest you do!
