Sing Yourself Into Spring!
Did you know that we have a special music collection at the Fraser Public Library? Sitting just before the Reference books you can find books with musical scores in the library. We have lots of titles, such as the Motown Anthology Rock & Roll from the 80’s, 70’s and 60’s, American Folk Tunes and Mozart just to name a few. So come check us out and play your way into good weather at the Fraser Public Library!
BookFlix is a digital literacy resource ideal for tablets or computers for children Pre-K – grade 3. Not only will this strengthen literacy in young readers, it will also expose young readers to real world concepts and help to build their comprehension skills. There are digital non-fiction books, author biographies, fiction/non-fiction pairings and interactive games to build vocabulary skills.

This is a 5 part series presented by Hospice of Michigan.
An open discussion about is it safe for mom or dad to still be driving. If it is not, how do you approach this sensitive dialogue? We will look at the challenges of caring for your loved ones when you are not near them. Together we will look at ways to help smooth over these challenges.
Lost Car Companies of Detroit
Thursday, May 9th @ 6:30pm
Among more than 200 auto companies that tried their luck in the Motor City, just 3 remain: Ford, General Motors and Chrysler. But many of those lost to history have colorful stories worth telling. For instance, J.J. Cole forgot to put brakes in his new auto, so on the first test run, he had to drive it in circles until it ran out of gas. Author Alan Naldrett presents this and more tales of automakers who ultimately failed but shaped the industry and designs putting wheels on the road today. Registration required.

Dungeons & Dragons
We now have two groups for D&D, and each month will feature a two-part story. We have switched the format from a campaign to two-shot stories so players can easily join in at any time. Pre-made character will also be available. This will be done along the lines of Adventurer’s league. Players will be able to reuse characters month to month however, depending on the month they may need to revise their character to correspond with the required level for the adventure being run. This information will be made available at the meetings and online. The two groups will also run the same content.
