August 10 – October 5, Arthur Miller Branch Library

We are thrilled that the Arthur Miller Branch was chosen from libraries across the US to host a display in conjunction with the new IMAX film Backyard Wilderness.

This interactive popup exhibit is designed to get families interested in exploring the natural world around them.  The exhibit allows children to go on a scavenger hunt to locate 15 different plant and animal species. They also learn about the basics of scientific exploration and observation.

In addition to the exhibit, we will also be hosting a bioblitz at the Miller Library on September 8 from 9 am  – 12 pm. Learn more about the bioblitz and register here.

The Faygo Book is the social history of a company that has forged a bond with a city and its residents for more than a century. The story of Faygo, Detroit’s beloved soda pop, begins over a hundred years ago with two Russian immigrant brothers who were looking to get out of the baking business.

Author Joe Grimm mixes the ingredients of a successful beverage company confected in dicey times in a boom-and-bust town. The Faygo Book is the story of a pop, a people, and a place. These stories and facts will tickle the taste buds and memories of Detroiters and Faygo lovers everywhere. There WILL be a pop quiz!

Registration is required. Register here or call 586.751.5377.
