Upcoming Events in the Community for October 2017




Books, book, books!!!

Great Start Livingston’s Parent Coalition and many partners, have been busy getting books into the hands of young children in the county. Book bins have been placed in lobby’s of several locations throughout Livingston County where children can read a book while waiting, or take a book to add to their own personal library. Donations can also be made to the book bins.

Below, is a list of the book bin’s locations as well as the locations of lending libraries throughout Livingston county.

Also, look for Great Start Livingston’s Cool Down reading center on Weds July 26th Kids Day at the Fowlerville Fair!
