The Monroe County Library System has partnered with other organizations in the community to provide necessities for the homeless. This "Necessity Drive" has been publicized to take place from October 6-10 throughout Monroe County, with library branches acting as drop-off points for donated materials.
The Necessity Drive asks for donations of toiletry items such as:
The Monroe County Library System calls for Authors and Illustrators for the 16th Annual Writers on the River Event!
A Library Card is your child's ticket to academic achievement!
The Monroe County Library System will soon offer a text message (SMS) alert system for all interested library patrons.
The SMS Alerts service will give patrons the option to receive text messages from the Monroe County Library System on their mobile device. After patrons opt into SMS Alerts, the Monroe County Library System will send text messages to bring an event to their attention, such as an overdue item or a hold ready for pickup. The service is optional and you can choose to opt out of SMS Alerts at any time.
The Michigan eLibrary, commonly known as MeL, wants to know how it can improve its services for you - the library user. The survey takes about 5-10 minutes and is completely confidential. The study will be available until July 4, 2014.
Butterflies at the Branches
The River Raisin Institute shares its Flight of the Butterflies project with branches of the Monroe County Library System. The sculptures were created by local schools out of recycled and repurposed materials in an effort to promote awareness about climate change.
