Ferndale Library: 5th Anniversary

WE’RE CELEBRATING THE FIFTH anniversary of our library’s grand renovation and expansion with a Benefit Concert on August 28 at the Loving Touch. We are so thankful to have the continued support of our community.

In the winter of 2009-2010, we moved all of our books, computers and materials to a temporary location so that the library’s expansion plan could be put into action, with crews working to modernize the building into its current state, combining a sense for historic preservation with environmentally conscious design. This renovation, funded by a millage approved by voters back in 2007 by a margin of 2-1, would bolster the building into a technologically advanced, environmentally friendly and overall welcoming space for our patrons.

This revitalized library would not only double in size, but would be saving energy with its eco-minded design, using high-efficiency geothermal heating/cooling along and low emission glass windows. Five years later, we find ourselves not only supported by the community but embraced, with exceptional rates of materials circulation (physical and electronic) and enthusiastic attendance of our special programming and cultural events.

As records from the Ferndale Historical Society show, this was actually the first significant renovation in 60 years. We couldn’t say thank you enough, but we’d also like to thank the Ferndale Citizens for a Better Library, who assembled to campaign for this expansion, highlighting that a strong, healthy public library is vital to the quality of life for this community. It is that sentiment that we would like to reiterate (and reverberate) through the form of live rock ‘n’ roll music from a lineup of talented local musicians and singers.

We hope to see you at the Loving Touch on Friday, August 28. This all ages show will begin at 8:00 P.M. (with a $5 suggested donation at the door); music will begin promptly at 9:00 P.M. Nationally renowned singer/songwriter Chris Bathgate will be performing, with more bands to be announced later this month.


Our annual Summer Reading program was a smashing success. Now that it’s wound down, our younger readers are preparing to return to school. There’s still a chance for some fun the whole family can enjoy with our monthly Game Days: an all ages drop-in featuring a wide range of board/card games, from 1:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. on Saturday, September 12. We have also started hosting a monthly Sewing Group on the third Saturday of each month for enthusiasts to meet, sew together and share ideas; Saturday, Sept 19, 2:00 P.M. to 6:00 P.M. While you’re still reading this lovely Library Update, why not consider participating in one of our fun and illuminating Book Clubs? Bored by your recent recreational reads? Try taking the adventure with a group of new friends. How’s that for a plot twist?

FADL’s annual Summer Reading Pro- gram took off on June 20. Contact our director, Jessica Keyser at 248-547 6000. Coming up: fiber artist Boisali

If something happened with our health, we believe there is a solution to any maladies in a medicament. What medicines do patients purchase online? Viagra which is used to treat impotency and other states coupled to erectile disfunction. Learn more about “sildenafil“. What folk talk about “viagra stories“? The most essential aspect you must look for is “sildenafil citrate“. Such problems commonly signal other problems: low libido or erectile dysfunction can be the symptom a strong health problem such as soul trouble. Causes of sexual dysfunction turn on injury to the penis. Chronic disease, several medicaments, and a condition called Peyronie’s disease can also cause sexual disfunction. Even though this medicine is not for use in women, it is not known whether this curing passes into breast milk.
