SALEM-SOUTH LYON DISTRICT LIBRARY NEWSLETTER

July 2018

MISSION: To educate, enrich and empower our community.



LIBRARY EXPANSION
COMING SOON...


In 2014, our community voted to make our wonderful library even better. We promised “enhanced facilities and to make timely capital improvements.” The time has come and we are fulfilling our promise. In just a few short weeks, the Library will break ground on a much-needed Children’s addition. 

The expansion will double the size of our current children’s area. It will include a programming room, designated Tween area, and quiet study and seating areas for children; all areas our community expressed interest in improving.  

We are excited for this journey to start. Follow along, as we will be updating progress regularly on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SSLDL/

LITERACY TIPS WITH MARY

Ms. Mary is our Literacy Specialist here at SSLDL!

July is a hottest month of the year so cool off in one of Michigan's wonderful beaches.  Visiting new places builds your child's background knowledge of the world around them. Enhance this experience by talking about the water, the sand, and the wildlife. The back and forth conversation that results will  build their vocabulary as well as their understanding.  

FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY INFO

The Friends Book Room, located just inside the library entrance to the left, is a place where you can find terrific deals on all kinds of books, music and movies—and each purchase you make goes toward supporting the library! 

Upcoming Sale Dates
  • July 17-24
    (Half-Off)
  • August 22-26
    (Giant Annual Sale)
