Upcoming Events

Passport to Spring: Japan, a Festival of Seasons

Saturday, April 30 from 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM

For our fourth annual Passport to Spring fundraiser, the Friends will be transforming the library into a representation of Japan for the evening. The Consulate-General of Japan in Detroit will be providing many items for display and decoration at this event. We will be working with a Japanese women’s group and others to provide demonstrations of several Japanese arts and ceremonies. Mark your calendars for a fun and informative evening at the library. Line up a babysitter, because due to alcohol being served, this is an adults only event.

About the Friends

The Friends are a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization that was started in 1985 “to promote public support of the Orion Township Public Library and the library in the community, to promote reading, literacy and lifelong learning, and to maintain an association of persons interested in the library.” Friends act in cooperation with the library board and staff, serving as a liaison between the community and library. All money raised by the Friends, except for minimal administrative costs such as postage and printing, is donated directly to the library in the way of program funding, material purchases and monetary contributions.
