Dr. Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz gives an interactive talk on how love can be a springboard for discussing race, racism, and injustice in schools. This event is part of the Washtenaw Intermediate School District’s Responsive Teaching Coalition and is in partnership with the Washtenaw Intermediate School District, Ann Arbor District Library, and Ypsilanti District Library.
Led by experienced meditator and mindfulness teacher Paulette Grotrian, we will define mindfulness and look at how it can help us to pause, create space, and come from a place of response rather than reaction to help reduce stress and increase feelings of well-being. Mon. 1/25 at 7pm or Tue. 1/26 at 1pm.
Weekly Storytime Kits include preschool craft supplies and 1-2 picture books that complement the Friday Fun Storytime at the end of each week. Beginning Saturday 1/23, stop in to pick up a kit to go along with the Cool Cats Friday Fun Storytime on 1/29.

Brecon Room Reservations
Due to the COVID-19 public health crisis, we are not accepting new Brecon Room reservations until further notice. We will continue to evaluate the situation each week and will keep everyone updated.
The Brecon Room is a meeting room with a capacity of 60 people that can be divided into two rooms with a capacity of 30 on each side. It may be used for certain limited educational, cultural, civic and intellectual functions by community groups. In order to reserve the Brecon Room for your group, you must be 18 years or older and have a valid SDL library card.
Please read all of the following before making an online reservation for the Brecon Room:
Per MDHHS guidelines, masks are required in the building (unless you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a face covering).
Apply for a library card online if you don't already have one. We can issue you a temporary virtual card so that you can reserve items and use our eLibrary, and you can pick up your card the next time you're in the library to pick up items.
Feel free to use the library's wifi outside the building 7am-10pm every day. The network is SDL-Wifi and the password is librarywifi (all lower case).
