FERRIS PUBLIC LIBRARY: More than books (August 22, 2019)
The Ferris Public Library has audiobooks that your child can listen to as they read along with the book. This method helps some children who are auditory learners vs. visual. We also have adult audiobooks for your work commute or listening pleasure. These items are on a two-week loaning period, and may be renewed two times – providing items are not on reserve for another patron.
Unity in Community (UIC) is planning a Celebration of Life Memorial in honor of Emmett Till on Wednesday, Aug. 28 at 7:30 a.m. Emmett was 14 years old when he was murdered in 1955. There will be a short ceremony and will be a starting point for UIC to honor those buried in the West Cemetery next to Ferris Memorial North Cemetery on Ferris Road. Carol Wright had been working on this project, and we hope to make her proud.
After-School Game Time for ages 7 through 17, is held every Tuesday, from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. Kids can play Wii and PS4 on the large screens, and for those that like the board games they can play them as well.
Story Time for pre-school children is on each Wednesday, at 11 a.m. Children will be treated to a story, fun activities, and have a snack. Before leaving, your child may choose a prize from the Treasure Chest.
