Welcome to the Leelanau Township Library
Message from the Director


We enjoyed another busy season at the Leelanau Township Library, greeting, on average, 115 visitors each day in June, July and August. We said “hello” to friends old and new all summer long; thanks for making the library part of your Leelanau summer.

Our summer theme was Libraries Rock! and we be-bopped with Northport kids at special stories and events every Thursday morning. Community members got in on the fun, leading events like Stone Stories & Sculptures with Evy Sussman, Musical Fun with Carrie Wadas, Art for Kids with Tom Woodruff, and Rockin’ with Lord & Lady Construction. We also found the beat with Drummunity, a community drum circle, and jumped with amazement at Joel’s Page Rocker library show.

With school back in session our kids’ programs shift gears. Wigglers storytime for preschool children is back every Thursday morning. On Saturday, October 20 Nate from the MSU Extension office will visit the library with his Spooky Insects - we hope to see you at this creepy crawly event.

The Friends of the Library held their Strawberry Brunch/Annual Meeting in June, the annual Book Sale in June, hosted the Summer Writers Series in July, and got Clifford to the Dog Parade in August. Thanks to the Friends who chaired these events, as well as the many volunteers that worked to make each event possible. The Friends will hold their fall meeting on Monday, October 29.
