Happy (snowy) Valentine's Day!

It’s a kid’s dream come true—sunny day, lots of snow, no school… time to curl up with some hot chocolate and a few books or run outside for some serious sledding! As the day draws to a close and you’re searching for a snowbound activity, head over to the Pittsfield Branch for Puppy Love. Bring a 4x6 photo of your favorite furry (or fishy) friend and leave with an adorable frame. The fun starts at 4 pm!

AADL-GT Pad Logo

Welcome back to the world of AADL-GT! Some weeks have passed since the tumultous Grand Championships and the end of the 2006 season; now it's time to look forward and talk about what worked and what didn't going into Season 4. If you want to be a part of this discussion, please join us this Saturday, 2/10, from 1-4 PM at the Pittsfield Branch Library behind the Ice Cube on Oak Valley Drive. We'll have plenty of open play, food, spirited discussions, a preview of the 2006 GC DVD, and your chance to be interviewed for bonus features on the disc. Please note that aged-out players (Seniors) are absolutely welcome at this event; your experienced input is invaluable to us, and we especially want to get interviews with as many graduating players as we can. We hope to see you all there! Read on for some items I'd like to discuss.

Local Historian Grace Shackman to Speak

Grace Shackman, well-known Ann Arbor historian and author, will discuss her latest book Ann Arbor Observed at the library's 'Sunday Edition' program on Sunday, December 10 at 2:00 p.m. at the Pittsfield Branch. Ms. Shackman's book consists of a selection of articles she has contributed over the years to the 'Ann Arbor Observer's' 'Then and Now' feature. She will read from the book, speak about her research methods and local history sources and resources. The book, which makes a fine holiday gift, will be for sale at the event and a book signing will follow. It's a great opportunity to meet a delightful local author and learn about some intriguing chapters in Ann Arbor's history.
