Bits and Bobs

The Ferndale Library is back in action. Neither Snowmaggedon nor Federal holiday could keep us down on Monday and we opened our doors and arms wide to Ferndale once again. Over the past few days I've witnessed patrons taking their stacks of ten CDs (that's the max we allow out at once) up to the circ desk. As the purchaser of music at the FPL, this warms my heart. I've been ordering new things like a madwoman, so expect to see lots of new musical treasures. If something you want is checked out, don't forget that you can place our CDs on hold through our online catalog.

A Ferndale Patch article by Deleano Acevedo about the local music collection went up this week. Deleano makes me and my project sound amazing. Plus the pictures are pretty good too!

Tomorrow, The Ferndale Fine Arts Boosters are having an Irish themed fundraiser for musical instruments, instrument repairs and other things Ferndale Schools need to keep music and other fine arts education alive in Ferndale.

The FPLs annual community read program is starting out it's month of programming next Thursday with The Crooked Man's Open Mic Night. Read, sing or perform your work at the library! All of the events are centered around The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly, so come and pick up your copy of the book for free at the library! Also, check out the library's Youtube channel for some comedic reinterpretations of fairy tales the staff has worked on in anticipation for Ferndale Reads.

Next Friday, First Stop Fridays are back! Sheefy McFly and the Delorean and The Electric Lamp Rays will perform. Doors are at 6:30 PM Music begins at 7.

Blowout is next week too! Four nights of running around Hamtramck's bars, halls and dives and sampling the best Detroit's music scene has to offer. It is my goal to put up my Blowout picks early next week, so if you don't see anything by Tuesday, write me a comment! Take a look at the schedule.

Whew! That's a lot of stuff! See you at the library!
