I want to thank all representatives of the Townships and Village who were able to attend last night’s Joint Informational Meeting and presentation by Lance Werner. The meeting was well attended by the community, despite the relatively short notice necessitated by Mr. Werner’s upcoming surgery, and we appreciate everyone’s interest in support of the Library.
For the benefit of those unable to attend, I have enclosed a copy of the presentation, which includes references to the relevant state law along with Mr. Werner’s contact information. A copy will also be available on our website, as will a link to the webcast of the presentation when it becomes available. Please let me know if you have any questions.
I look forward to continuing our work together to make The Romeo District Library the best in southeast Michigan!!!

Sincerely,
Elizabeth Miller
RDL Board President

Award winning Michigan author Beverly Jenkins will be at the Graubner Library to celebrate the release of her fifth book in the Bring on the Blessings series “Heart of Gold”. The series is set in fictional Henry Adams, Kansas and is centered around the foster kids sent there to give them a better life. In each book, one of the kids finds a new family.
“Already one of the premier names in African-American historical romance fiction and thrilling contemporary romantic suspense, Jenkins is a wonderfully versatile storyteller who enchants with this poignant, heartwarming, and funny tale about the joys and trials of a uniquely endearing community.”-from amazon.com
