The Grosse Pointe Public Library is a gift for all! No matter our age, education or allegiance — the Library is there to serve each one of us in ways great and small. The Library provides our community with the opportunity to learn and grow, to be entertained and amazed, to be enriched and enlightened, to relax and unwind. This is a service no other institution can claim!
Please consider a gift to the Friends and Foundation as we work together to support the Library. Your gift makes it possible for our Library to be a gift for all!

The 2018 Annual Membership Meeting and 70th Anniversary
of Friends of the Grosse Pointe Public Library
was held on May 17th at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial

“Ravel’s Bolero is the perfect metaphor to describe the Friends of the Grosse Pointe Public Library.  You sense something beautiful is happening … Detroit is singing a little louder, Belle Isle is singing a little louder and the GPPL is singing a little louder.  We’ve always been quietly singing and now is our time as a community to truly shine and make beautiful music together!” ~ Michele Hodges ~

Thank you Michele Hodges, Full Circle, The War Memorial, The Friends Board and everyone who attended for their generous support and assistance to the success of this program
