Adult Summer Reading Program: Stop in the library to sign-up or register online! Read 5 books and get a book free and a chance to win a prize.
One Book One Buchanan: Join us in our community-wide read of the book Caste: The Origins of our Discontent by Pulitzer Prize winner Isabel Wilkerson. From her website: “Caste invites us to discover the inner workings of an American hierarchy that goes far beyond the confines of race, class, or gender. A book steeped in empathy and insight, Caste explores, through layered analysis and stories of real people, the structure of an unspoken system of human ranking and reveals how our lives are still restricted by what divided us centuries ago.”
In partnership with One Buchanan and the Buchanan Art Center, we are pleased to offer this new program. Buchanan District Library was among 11 Michigan libraries to be awarded a national grant to fund initiatives that enable libraries to lead community engagement efforts in their communities.
A community-wide discussion of the book will take place on Wednesday, September 1, on the Common Stage. Register on our website for your copy of the book, or stop in the library to register in person.
New t-shirt designs are here! Need a gift for someone on Father’s Day? How about a book and a t-shirt! Choose one of our new designs or stick to our classic design, then find a book or two at our book sale located in the library! T-shirts are made to order at Impressive Lettering.
