The Monroe County Library System is partnering with Oaks Victory Village to offer Story Times before free community dinners.
Beginning February 15, 2017 children can enjoy stories while waiting for dinner to be served at the Oaks Victory Village on East Second Street in Monroe.
Nancy Bellaire, Director of the Monroe County Library System explains, “Our mission is to enrich the quality of life for all residents of the county. This is simply another avenue for us to provide library services and meet people where they are.”
Honoring the Citizens of Nineteenth Century Monroe
In 1817, Monroe became a county through a proclamation by then Govenor of the Michigan Territory, Lewis Cass. At that time it included all of Lenawee and a portion of Wayne and Washtenaw counties. Michigan was not yet a state, but a territory. Monroe was the second county to be established, Wayne County being the first.
