Arrrhh, do you be liken’ pirates? Then come spend a fun evening with our very own pirate crew. Shake hands with the men who once terrorized the seas and fought for treasure. Watch as they shoot their cannon and explain the technique and science behind the use of artillery. Photo ops will be available as well as the possibility of being made to “walk the plank.” Guaranteed fun for the whole family. Activities will take place outside behind the library. No Registration required.

The Romeo District Library offers free state park passes for Michigan readers. Back for its sixth summer, the Park & Read program offers library card holders a FREE one day pass valid at any of Michigan’s 102 scenic state parks.  The passes can be used for a variety of outdoor adventures and exercise in Michigan’s state parks.
Park & Read gives library card-holders the ability to “check-out” a one-day pass that is valid for vehicle entry into any Michigan state park or recreation area.  Passes are valid for seven days from checkout to make travel planning easier.  The Park & Read program will run through October 1, 2014. Passes are available at the Circulation Desk for check-out.
For more information on the Park & Read program, a complete list of participating libraries, and a roster of events taking place throughout the state, click here.  Park & Read passes are not valid for group events (like weddings) or overnight stays.

Afraid of needles? You are not alone. Many people share that fear but find that they can still give blood. What most say is that the slight initial pinch pales in comparison to the feeling of accomplishment they get at the end of a successful donation! Focus on the lives you may be helping to save by donating blood. By giving a single pint of blood you may help save as many as three lives. You will feel just a slight pinch and it’s over in seconds. The difference you can make may last a lifetime. So come on out to the library or make an appointment. It’s that easy to save a life!
To register for an appointment call the Graubner Library (586)752-0603 opt. 4 or go to http://www.redcrossblood.org/home
