Saturday, December 16th, 3–4 pm. Winter Solace Harp and Viola Concert with Joan and David Holland. Has this colder weather given you the winter blues? Join IPL in welcoming Joan Holland, Harpist, and David Holland, Violist, as they present a Winter Solace Concert of original and arranged compositions. All ages are welcome. The Friends of Interlochen Public Library sponsors this free event. 


Wed., November 29th, 6-7 pm. This grant opportunity seeks to raise awareness about including people with developmental, emotional, and physical disabilities in all facets of community life, as well as understanding the barriers that people with disabilities occasionally face in connecting to the communities in which they live. The goal is to encourage an empathetic community, open the lines of communication, and better understand why accessibility matters and what it means to be a safe environment for all. Libraries bridge the gap between people with disabilities and those without so that no one feels they don't have the information they need to interact with patrons regardless of ability.
