Here is the latest news from your Director at the Romeo District Library.
Brief history of/ update on Lawsuit
The Romeo District Library (RDL) was established in 1969. The Village of Romeo and the townships of Bruce and Washington have been sharing controversy-free enjoyment of the library and its services until recently.
In July of 2014, Washington Township filed a lawsuit. You can read the facts of the case here: http://romeodistrictlibrary.org/?page_id=82 .

Judge Caretti ruled in favor of the Library in February of 2015. Five days later Washington Township voted to appeal that decision. The date to hear oral arguments in the appeal case is Tuesday, May 3rd at 11:00 a.m. at the Michigan Court of Appeals in Detroit.
