Welcome Librarians! 

Since 1997, Outreach has targeted the Michigan Libraries Summer Reading Program and has developed and marketed a program to match each year’s theme.  

Now you may wonder, what can a Nature Center offer your library each year?  Well, that’s just it!  We put our creative minds together and come up with a program that connects your theme with nature.  Every summer is different! We look forward to each year’s theme.  For the 2015 Summer Reading Program we offer a specially-designed program called Nature's Super Heroes! 

To book a program, contact Sara Roman, Registrar, at (269) 381-1574 ext 24 or by email

Thank you and if you have any questions please give me a call or email me.
