Greetings & Salutations!
As we look back at 2019, we are humbled by your support for your library. We completed
the gorgeous $1.2 million expansion and renovation of the children’s area including a second community room fulfifilling promises made in support of the 2014 millage. We are grateful for every contribution, kind word and you time spent with us. Together, we are making wonderful opportunities available to all.
Looking forward, our library board recently established an endowment with the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan. The endowment is funded by gifts from community members including legacy gifts and from designated fundraisers. Our goal is to grow the fund in order to support future SSLDL area residents. Go to for more information.
It is with great regret that we will no longer have Mr. Jim Quigly on our board. After six years, Jim decided to spend more time with his family. Jim is a gentleman and a scholar. We will truly miss his perspective. He has made the Library a better place for all. Ms. Denise Stacer has been appointed to fifill the vacancy until the next election. Welcome, Denise!
Congratulations to our 2019 Persons and Organizations of the Year! Lynn & Ken Kneisel, The Brick Crew (Gary Moore, Dan Noble, Bill Terrell, Ken Kneisel), Sewing for You (Cheryl Anderson, Marilyn Shuster, Patti Velliere), Karen Backus (Coral Sash) Shaw Construction, Hire Road Staffiffing, Advanced Disposal. We cannot do what we do without you.
