Elvis Presley was told he'd never make it as singer. He kept trying until one late night at the recording studio, it all came together like magic. The rest is history and he went on to become one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Stop by the display showcase and remember Elvis. Earn CYS badges too. If you fill out a quiz and correctly answer all the questions, your name will be entered in a drawing for 2 free tickets to the Michigan Elvis Fest, July 13 and 14 in historic Depot Town, Ypsilanti. The quiz is located next to the Michigan Elvis Fest poster on the large print shelf. Return quizzes to the Help Desk.
