Library Update January 2017

January 2017

Beginning January 6, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. Fruitport will begin our service agreement with Spring Lake District Library for the months of January, February and March 2017. Fruitport Library residents will go to Spring Lake Library, let them know you are a Fruitport resident, fill out an application for a library card (you will need your driver’s license) and there will be no cost.

It is the goal of the Fruitport District Library Board of Directors to have a soft library opening April 1, 2017 with plans for a grand opening in May 2017.

The Fruitport District Library Agreement and Plan of Service have been approved by the Library of Michigan.

If you are in the area, you may want to stop by the Fruitport Library across from Fifth Third Bank in the Village of Fruitport to meet our new librarian, Bethany Nettleton. There will be some events that will be held at the library and we are looking for more ways to use the library for the community.

The Library of Michigan has informed us that Muskegon County patrons that are qualified Blind and Physically Handicapped and meet these state requirements can utilize the subregional library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped located at the MADL Administration Building, 4845 Airline Road, as this address receives funding from the State. Those qualifying can pick up their books at this address or can have them delivered to their homes.

Thank you for your continued support during this rebuilding time. Fruitport District Library will experience start up pains, but once we are open for service, library services and programs will be provided for Fruitport library users.

Please join us for the monthly library meeting at the Fruitport Township Hall the third Wednesday of each month at 5:30 p.m. where you can meet the Fruitport District Library Board and Library Director.
