Join experts from the Michigan Office of Financial and Insurance Regulation for seven free, non-commercial financial workshops on Monday nights from February through May at the Royal Oak Public Library. These non-commercial presentations will not contain sales pitches for any particular products. The state is offering these programs free to Michigan citizens with the help of funding from the Investor Protection Trust in Washington, D.C.
Join us for a great book discussion, activities and a light snack as we discuss kids books geared towards grades 3 - 6.
The programs are free but sign up is limited to the first 15 participants. Sign up in person at the Youth Reference Desk and check out your copy of the books during the book pickup weeks prior to the discussion dates.
Call the Youth Reference Desk at 248-246-3725 for more information.
Are you interested in Royal Oak History? You can visit our Local History Room or the Royal Oak Historical Society Museum. Museum curator, Muriel Versagi, gave a very informative talk describing all the treasures found at the museum here at the library on November 2.
Are you interested in your family’s history? Milford Librarian Sarah Hatter presented a workshop here on November 9th titled Researching your Family History.
Libraries for many years have crossed local boundaries and shared resources through cooperative lending agreements with other libraries. Royal Oak Public Library is part of a library cooperative, The Library Network (TLN), which includes 65 libraries in four counties of southeastern Michigan. When you place a hold for a book from our eLibrary shared catalog, the book may arrive here from Oakland, Wayne, Livingston, or Washtenaw County, delivered by the TLN trucks that make daily delivery runs. If you cannot find a book within TLN, the MelCat system allows you to request interloans from libraries all over Michigan. When you visit other libraries in TLN, your ROPL card is honored by those libraries. By sharing our resources, we can connect our card holders to more materials than one single library can afford to purchase and house.
