The Corunna/Caledonia branch of the Community District Library has been serving the community at its current location since 2004. The renovations and move to that location were made possible through countless volunteer hours and the generous donations from businesses and individuals alike.
As the years have gone by, the library has grown into a community asset for all ages. The branch provides a variety of programs for its users. They include adult coloring and book clubs, preschool story hours, summer reading programs, a knitting group, yoga classes, craft programs and more. These free programs, along with daily use of library computers, after school visits, WiFi, and copy and fax services resulted in nearly 38,000 visits to the branch in the last year.
To maintain the comfort and appearance of the branch, the library is joining the Friends of the Library group to raise funds to replace the carpeting. The library is offering the community an opportunity to join in the effort by making a donation to help with the purchase. All businesses and individuals donating $100 or more will have their name engraved on a plaque for display in the library. “It is through these donations that the library will continue to be a pleasant and welcoming asset to our community. We thank everyone for their support,” says Sue Huff, branch manager. Checks may be mailed or dropped off at the library, and should be made payable to “Community District Library, 210 E. Corunna Ave., Corunna, MI 48817.” Include a note indicating how the name should appear on the engraved plaque.
For more information, please call (989) 743-4800. Librarian assistant Cathy Cramner and Branch Manager Sue Huff can be seen with the engraved plaques that will honor those who donated $100 or more towards the library fundraising effort for new carpeting.
