Orion Township Public Library receives Friends donation

The Friends of the Orion Township Public Library recently presented a check for $10,000 to the Orion Township Public Library for funds raised at the Friends Passport to Spring Gala event which was held at the library at the end of April.

Over 300 guests attended The Passport to Spring: A Visit to Poland event when the library was filled with Polish music, food, culture, and entertainment.

“This donation will be used to upgrade the technology in the Teen Room at our library,” said Karen Knox, director, Orion Township Public Library. “Orion teens would like to be able to have access to the latest video game systems, chargers for their portable devices, and special software on the computers. With this generous donation from the Friends, we will be able to provide our teens with upgraded technology, which encourages them to keep coming to the library.”

Library staff plan to add these upgrades to the Teen Room this summer. Be sure to stop in a take a look!
