A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new addition to the Cromaine Library is set for 9 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 29.
“It is thrilling to celebrate both 90 continuous years of connecting culture and community and the grand opening of the 2017 renovation and addition to the Cromaine District Library in one ribbon-cutting event with our community partner, Hartland Area Chamber of Commerce.,” said Cecilia Ann Marlow, the library’s director. “The support of all of our community—businesses, fellow non-profits, and individuals—have made our history of service meaningful. Sharing this new and reconfigured space is an exciting look at the future.”
The ribbon cutting kicks off a weekend full of celebrations at Cromaine. From 6:30-8:30 pm on Friday, a celebration includes harp music on the first floor, a concert by the women’s a capella group Decibelles on the third floor, as well as food and tours and displays throughout the building. A family celebration is set from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, including Guy Louis’ family concert for all ages and On the Rhodes ice cream truck with free ice cream and frozen treats (while supplies last). There will also be old-time games on the lawn and craft activities from the past and present, plus a mystery hunt.
The Cromaine Library is located at 3688 Hartland Road. For more information, call (810) 632-5200.
