Announcing our Second Annual Altered Book Contest!
An altered book is any book that has been made into an object of art. Stop by the Information Desk to pick up an old book to create with or use one of your own. One prize will be awarded in each of these categories: Adult (18+), Teen (13-17), Kids (12 & under – parents may help.) All entries are due by September 27. The Library staff will select the winners, to be announced in early October. All art will be on display in the Library throughout October. Pick up a registration form and flyer with complete details from our Information Desk display or download them here.
The Library’s parking lot is original to the current building which was constructed in 1991 and dedicated in March 1992. After 23 years and a couple of winters with severe freeze/thaw cycles, the parking lot is in serious need of repair.
Join Clarkston Independence District Library for our Open Mic Night on the third Friday of the month, from 7-9 pm. Our first Open Mic Night will be on September 16th in the Library Community Room.
As part of the library’s mission to engage the community, we invite local performance artists to gather and share their art at the library. Performers can play instruments, sing a song or recite a poem. Our open mic features guest host, Dan Greene, who has eight years of experience with open mics in Ferndale, Hazel Park and Royal Oak. He and has recorded two albums which are available for checkout at CIDL.
