Also as a child Junger was interested in dangerous situations where people lived and worked. Later in life this led Junger to pursue the profession as a high-climber for tree removal companies. But after a chainsaw injury he thought better of it and instead decided to focus on journalism and telling stories about people with dangerous jobs.

Please note that we have officially entered "summer hours" where computer use is concerned. Computer sessions are limited to 30 minutes; no exceptions. If there are available computers after you have signed out and given others a reasonable chance to log on, additional sessions may be available.

If these rules are not followed, it may result in computer priveleges being restricted or revoked. If everyone follows the rules and uses common sense and fairness, we can keep our public computer system simple and accessible.

Thank you for your help in ensuring that all of our patrons and visitors are able to get online during this busy time of year.

"We are all getting along and sharing the computers fairly! Hooray for the library! Hooray for summer! Hooray for stock photography!"

Our Super Science Day with the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum was super successful! Check out some photos below (just click on the picture for a larger image.)

 

A big thanks goes out to Andrea from AAHOM, and also to our friends at the Ontonagon Theater of Performing Arts for letting us hold the workshops in their fancy Chandelier Room! It was a perfect setting for the "Crime Lab" mystery that the older kids solved!
