March 9, 6:30 pm
Presented by Joannée DeBruhl (co-owner of Stone Coop Farm)

Joannée will speak about the story how of her organic farm came to be, what is involved with maintaining a certified organic farm, and growing crops during the winter in unheated hoop-houses.

Stone Coop Farm, owned by Joannée DeBruhl and Shannon Rau, is a certified organic farm in Brighton, Michigan. They specialize in sustainably grown vegetables and fruits with many heirloom varieties. They operate a CSA membership and sell at farmer’s market and wholesale. The farm is active in the community, donating produce for Gleaners Community Food Bank and supporting local efforts to increase awareness of the importance of eating locally and organically. 

Big Library Read!

ShakespeareBLR FBgraphic

March 17 - 31, 2015

LTPL will be taking part in another Big Library Read program!

Library card holders will be able to borrow and enjoy the book "Shakespeare Saved My Life:  10 Years in Solitary with the Bard" by Laura Bates starting March 17 and concluding at Midnight on April 1 (US EST) by visiting our Download Destination site.  Patrons will be able to select a lending period of one, two, or three weeks, which begins at the date of checkout.

Description: 

Shakespeare professor and prison volunteer Laura Bates thought she had seen it all. That is, until she decided to teach Shakespeare in a place the bard had never been before — supermax solitary confinement. In this unwelcoming place, surrounded by inmates known as the worst of the worst, is Larry Newton. A convicted murderer with several escape attempts under his belt and a brilliantly agile mind on his shoulders, Larry was trying to break out of prison at the same time Laura was fighting to get her program started behind bars.

Thus begins the most unlikely of friendships, one bonded by Shakespeare and lasting years—a friendship that, in the end, would save more than one life. 

Interested patrons will be able borrow Shakespeare Saved My Life using a valid library card, and read on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Nook®, Android™ phones and tablets, and Kindle® without worrying about wait lists or holds. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, and best of all, there are no late fees!
