***What’s Happening***

2024 Ongoings

The Albion Area Public Library recently received a generous grant from the Rees Foundation! We were able to purchase a new main floor display and Children/Adult Programming tables. Both purchases will allow us to better serve our library patrons! Thank you, Elizabeth Rees, for your generous donation!

 

We will be continuing our “Take and Make” Book Program for 2024!! Look for new bags each month on our FB page.

 

We are working with several departments at the Northwestern High school to continue our StoryWalk on the nature trail. Our StoryWalk is an ongoing (year-round) activity that the Northwestern High School and Albion Area Public Library are working on together.

 

Adult Yoga classes are held on certain Saturdays in the Children’s Library at 10 am. Next class- Spring 2024

 

Check out our FB page for upcoming and ongoing children and adult programs!!

 

SEED LIBRARY

We will be starting a Seed Library soon!

What is a seed library? It is a collection of seeds (vegetable, herb, and flower) that patrons are able to borrow in order to plant and grow at home. At the end of the growing season, a portion of the seeds are then returned to the library’s collection.

Why a seed library?

-helps reintroduce patrons to the art of growing food.

-combats hunger insecurity and biodiversity loss.

-encourages experimentation

-a low risk opportunity to try something new
