KDL Celebrates 75 Years

Mark your calendars now for an incredible party! On Tuesday, October 18 from 7:00 – 10:00 pm, the KDL Fund will host KDL Celebrates: Dewey to Digital in 75.  This blockbuster party will celebrate 75 years of KDL — from its humble beginnings during the Great Depression to one of Michigan’s most respected and busiest library systems.

At KDL Celebrates, the KDL Service Center will come alive with a showcase of incredible library offerings our founders could not even begin to imagine. From eBooks to downloadable music, online language learning to online databases, KDL will offer a taste of something for every guest.

An author book tour will highlight the evening. KDL Celebrates will feature an eclectic array of local and national authors in person, live via Skype technology, video greetings, or through their current book releases. Our goal is to feature 75 authors during the evening. Schuler Books & Music will be on hand to provide their current releases for sale. 

Guests will enjoy scrumptious food and beverages while engaging in the current and future highlights of KDL. To truly enjoy KDL Celebrates, guests are invited to bring their smartphones, eBook readers or tablets to get a taste of just a few of KDL’s digital offerings and other special activities. 

Tickets for KDL Celebrates are $75 each and will be available online beginning September 8.  Proceeds will support KDL Fund efforts on behalf of early literacy programs and preserving quality library services for the next 75 years.
