September is Library Card Sign Up Month!
The first 200 NEW patrons to sign up for a library card during the month of September will receive a special “Snoopy” library card AND be put in a drawing for a Kindle Fire®! The “Peanuts Gang” will be hanging out in the lobby, so stop by and take a selfie with them to show your friends you’ve got the coolest card in your wallet!
History of Michigan Apples
We welcome family history researchers to spend some time digging into the library’s online genealogy resources, such as Ancestry Library Edition, HeritageQuest, SeekingMichigan.org, and our own StoriesofChelsea.org. Expert volunteers will be on hand to offer advice and guidance for next steps in your family tree exploration.Please register in advance through our online event calendar, calling or by visiting the library. Registration is very important so that our volunteers can prepare for your questions.
Play an important and powerful role in shaping the early learning experiences of your child! Babytime is the perfect place to socialize and learn important skills with your baby or toddler. We’ll be singing songs, doing bouncy rhymes, learning some “baby signing” and reading along to fun board books in the first half of this program. In the second half, the toys come out! While the babies play (and learn to share!), caregivers have a chance to socialize and exchange information.
This is a 3 day workshop. By registering for the first day, you are agreeing to attend all three days of events. Students looking to prepare for the PSAT exam are invited to attend a free PSAT prep seminar conducted by College Tutors of Ann Arbor. Attendees will work with real PSAT tests, examine numerous problems and improve their test knowledge. Pizza will be served following the practice test on the last day!
Featuring contemporary authors, quirky fiction and strange but true nonfiction. Books will be available at the Check Out Desk. This month we’re reading Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari. In partnership with Chelsea Alehouse.
