    i visited the wyoming public library. It is much larger than my home library (walker). the librarians were very helpful as they are at Walker as well.

    We’re so glad you enjoyed the Wyoming branch!

    I usually go to Grandville Public Library but this time I went to East GrandRapids. There is a lot more space and its a bit quieter. I liked it a lot. So glad I could explore another library.

    While up north, my daughter Alicia attended 2 programs at the Benzie Shores District Library in Frankfort. She attended a writing workshop and a drawing workshop. It’s fun to see new places.

  27. Allison, KDL Staff Says:

    That’s great Amy! How old is your daughter? We have some good craft programs for different ages coming up, if she is a teen she might be interested in this cool program:


  28. Fiona Moord Says:

    I visited a different library (Comstock Park) for a Down in the Dirt art event. It was very fun with Dr. Dirt because I got to paint and do all sorts of things with the friends I went with. I felt like they were good with the kids and really helped me learn about science. I feel like it was a good library event. I love going to libraries that have very good events, especially this one.

  29. Allison, KDL Staff Says:

    I’m so glad you had a good time at our Comstock Branch Fiona, we have fun programs like this one all year round so be sure to check out our website or your local branch for more information!

    I visited the East Grand Rapids, Plainfield, Sand Lake, and Grandville branches. I go to my home library in Rockford a few days a week.

  31. Lorelei L. Says:

    I went to the Kent County Youth Fair for Reading for Rides. It was fun! I also really liked seeing the cows, chickens, goats, sheep, pigs, and horses. I also enjoyed the rabbits and the cavies (that’s guinnea pigs).
