Free Fall Kids Events at Your Neighborhood West MI Library

This post is sponsored by Silver Lake Campground and Resort, family vacation spot for those who love to camp. Experience breathtaking views of Silver Lake and Lake Michigan as you sit atop a 150-foot hill in a recreational vehicle. The sand dunes are Silver Lake’s family playground. You can rent or bring your own buggy, take a guided tour with the whole family, or simply relax at one of the many surrounding beaches. Our Local Libraries Always Deliver The wonder of the library goes beyond books. The libraries around West Michigan are always opening up our minds and imaginations. This fall many local branches are full of Autumn-centric offerings, from mad science creations to pumpkin carving to ventriloquism (with a Halloween theme!). The best part? They’re FREE! Which free library event will we find you at this fall? Related: Gymco Delights in Seeing Your Child Learn Through
