The Friends of the Brighton District Library donate more than $28,000 annually to help fund library programs which provide enrichment, education, and enjoyment for all ages. Included are the Sandy Schneidewind Books for Babies program, online databases like Mango Languages, the Summer Reading Program, Springfest, Holiday Open House, Livingston Reads, Writer’s Workshops, and movie licenses which allow the library to show films to the public at no charge.

“The numerous and diverse programs sponsored by the Friends enriches the Brighton community,” said Marsha Luetjen, president of the Friends of the Brighton District Library. “Not only are the sponsored programs fun and educational, they bring people to the library. Once there, they have access to knowledge. Knowledge is power. Every 50 cents and every dollar buys that knowledge. Plus the sale merchandise provides hours of entertainment. Come to the book sale and have fun. I hope to see you there.”

The Spring Book Sale is located at the Brighton District Library, 100 Library Drive. For information about the book sale or becoming a member of the Friends of the Brighton Library, call (810) 229-6571 or visit
