I hope your holiday was everything you wished for and that you are staying warm! It is way too cold for this early in winter. There is always a sense of anticipation at the start of a new year, but here at the Adrian District Library we have a heightened sense of anticipation for 2018. We will be celebrating the 150th anniversary of the library! We have lots of fun planned for the entire year and hope you can help us celebrate this milestone. You can start by joining us on January 13th to get the party started! The Friends of the Library are sponsoring this event for all ages.
In this newsletter you will find some of the youth activities we have coming up. I hope you can join us for some of them.

This newsletter is just one of many ways the library keeps our patrons informed of what is going on. Gone are the days when a simple press release to the local paper does the trick. Check out the library's website, especially the calendar, for news and events.
We also try to post most of our library programs and activities as Events on Facebook. So - make a New Year's resolution to "Like" the Adrian District Library! If you see an Event you are interested in, click on 'Going' or 'Interested' and Facebook will remind you of the event.
And, we still send press releases to the radio stations and Daily Telegram . . .
