$500 Livingston Reads 2012. This year’s book was “Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins. We’ve got a lead on a survival teacher, wild game chef, and some very interesting movies for a “Cinema Apocalyptica” series.
$3,800 Big Read 2012. This year the title is Twain’s “Adventures of Tom Sawyer.” As the only Michigan library receiving a Big Read grant, your leadership in our non-NEA-funded year, went a long way to proving sustainability.
