Warning! A zombie horde has been seen in the library. The Graubner Library has been contaminated with an unknown substance. Locals have been showing signs of zombification. Upon awakening the zombies begin hunting their prey, they begin hunting YOU! No one is safe! The only way to stop the outbreak is to find the antidote. Are you brave enough to complete a game of HvZ and find the antidote to save us all?

HvZ is a game of tag meets zombie apocalypse that will be played out on the library lawn. Complete missions, earn prizes and survive the night! Program is for teens ages 12 to 16. Wearing clothes that can get dirty is recommended as this event will take place outside on the library lawn. Weather permitted, no rain date.

Many of us are aware of the sights and sounds of the American Civil War.  But few are aware of the role played by Religion and the churches before the start of the American Civil War. What was the role of Chaplain’s and how did they handle military life and battle?  Come join presenter Worley H. Smith for a morning discussion on the Fighting Parsons plus much more.

Come join us as Dossin Ship Museum Associate, Steve Mrozek, brings us back in time to November’s Great Storm of 1913, where over 250 Great Lakes sailors met their fate as 19 ships went down in one of the worst storms recorded. Then jump ahead to November of 1975 as we join the crew of the Edmund Fitzgerald as it too slips beneath the waves carrying with it the lives of all 29 aboard. Guaranteed to be an exciting night for all those who love the history of our Great Lakes.

No registration required, but seating is limited.

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
