Doodling Artist, Michigan Author, & More in April at Fremont Library
“The only thing that you absolutely have to know, is the location of the library.”- Albert Einstein
The Fremont Area District Library is planning to host several fun and educational events in April for the whole family. These events are FREE, as always.
Live @ the Library, a series of events including author visits and special presentations is welcoming local artist and graphic designer Victor Du Bois for Doodling Fun. Learn how to doodle whimsical and spontaneous caricatures, words, patterns, abstract and more! Materials provided free. Please register by emailing email@example.com, but walk-ins are welcome. For ages 10 & up on Saturday, April 15th at 10:00 a.m.; lasting 2 hours.
Live @ the Library will also welcome Michigan Notable author John Wemlinger. In The Cut, named a 2022 Michigan Notable Book, Alvin Price and Lydia Cockrum literally bump into one another in the summer of 1870 and fall in love. Coming from vastly different backgrounds, their relationship encounters struggle amid the feuding farmers and powerful lumber industry in Manistee, Michigan. Additionally, a terrible storm on October 8, 1871 will sweep across the upper Midwest, setting off fires in Chicago and dozens of other cities, including Manistee. Will their love endure? Wemlinger will also answer questions and have books available to purchase and sign at this event on Thursday, April 20th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room.
Toddler Storytime, for babies and toddlers up to age 3, will be held on Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. until April 12th, and Family Storytime for children up to age 5 will be held on Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. until April 13th.
