Keeping Up with the Library!

Don't be disappointed that you missed a new library program or the launch of a new service.  Stay in the know.  The best way to keep up with all the goings-on at the library is by following us on Facebook.  We're also on Twitter and Instagram, have a weekly column in the Advance, and our programs are included in the Blissfield Report at 12:30 pm every Friday on WLEN.  Of course, you can always call the library at 517-486-2858 or email info@blissfieldlibrary.org with any questions.  

Did You Know...

Library Auditorium...that the Library's auditorium is available to rent?  It's true.  Auditorium rental includes seating for 80, dining and buffet tables, a kitchen, and use of the library's public restrooms.  You can even rent it when the library isn't open.  The space is great for celebrations of all types: birthdays, graduations, baby showers, and other gatherings.  Businesses can rent the space for meetings, trainng sessions, and other activities that do not include selling products or services. Rental fees begin at $75 for up to five hours if the contract is signed by a resident of the library service area and $100 if outside the service area. Call the library at 517-486-2858 to reserve the space or with any questions.

Meet Our Guests
