In mid-December, we hosted our 2nd Annual Holiday Literacy Village for families involved in Read Muskegon programs, enrolled in local Head Starts or participating in other parent support programs. Parents and children made their way through nine stations, each focused on fun ways to build early literacy skills. Before heading home, each child was able to select several books to keep and each parent was provided with a literacy resource bag. Thank you to all of those who helped make this event possible including our many individual donors. And a big thanks to the Whitehall High School NHS students who got up bright and early on a Saturday morning to volunteer! The gift of literacy is one that will last a lifetime.
We are excited to announce that we will be moving our offices over the next few weeks. We have enjoyed the last several years working out of the Muskegon Area District Library offices on Airline Road and are thankful for their partnership, but our long-term goal has always been to move to downtown Muskegon so that we would be more accessible to our learners.
Our new office will be located in the heart of downtown, at Central United Methodist Church, 1011 2nd Street. The church is also the home of Kid’s Food Basket.
Over the next several weeks, we will still be providing services but our office space will be closed while we paint, move and reorganize. If you need to check out or return resources during that time, please contact Sarah at 766-5040 and she will arrange to meet you. Our phone numbers and mailing address will remain the same.
We’ll have an open house at our new space early in 2016. Hope to see you all there!
