2019 Friends of the EPL Membership Drive is ON!



Envision the New EPL! – The Membership Drive Is On!
Become a friend TODAY! – Help us reach our goal!

The Friends of Ecorse Public Library kicks off their 2019 “Envision the New EPL Membership Drive” on February 1 – October 31, 2019 in conjunction with National Friends the Library Week and beyond!  Put us on your Christmas List!  To reach our goal of 50 new members, the Friends will be asking the community to show some library love.
Ecorse residents are known for enthusiastically supporting their community. This membership drive is a great opportunity for community members to go one step further and either become a member for the first time or renew a membership that was forgotten in the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
An annual Friends membership is a great value considering the perks members receive in return. The Friends use those membership dollars to support the library by funding the purchase of books, media, and supplies and by sponsoring popular library programs, including youth and adult reading challenges and other events.

Survey: Children’s Programs


Programs for school-aged kids. Click the pic to visit the website.












Library time is active, not passive.


Maybe in your mind the library is an eerily quiet place with lots of shushing. But today’s youngest library patrons engage — with books and magazines, with librarians, and with other kids. Most libraries offer regular children’s programs that make stories come to life. (Think puppets, costumes, and animated storytellers.) And often this magic happens in cozy corners where kids flop down on big pillows and bean-bag chairs.


Click the pic and take a look at some of the engaging  children’s programs that are current taking place in libraries across the country.    Currently, the EPL has several children’s programs that’s endanger of falling by the wayside due to a lack of participation.  The community in partnership with the EPL must correct this.  How?  Do your part to be informed through EPL, this website and school!  Perhaps new programs would help, but in order to do this we need children and parents to participate!  Take a look at the ALSC Programs and make suggestions for new program ideas, then volunteer!  We’re anxious to hear what you think!  Please respond by submitting your thoughts and ideas via our “Contact Us” page or call us at (313) 389-2030 or visit us at: 4184 W. Jefferson Ave., Ecorse, MI 48229.
