Adult Summer Reading is back, but it’s going to be a little different this year. For the first time we will have an online option using Wandoo Reader for entries. For more information about this year’s Summer Reading Challenge, take a look at our Summer Reading Page.
Booked for the Evening
Thursday, July 9 @ 6:30 PM: Where the Crawdads Sing – Booked for the Evening Zoom Meeting

The book club meetings will be held online via Zoom. Whether you’re a long-time member of the club or have never come before, we’d love for you to join us!

Raising Backyard Chickens – Tuesday, July 14 @ 6:00 PM
Macomb 4-H Program Coordinator Seth Martin from Michigan State University Extension will be presenting on starting a backyard chicken flock. This presentation will include information on ownership and care of chickens, what you need to get started, special considerations for city ordinances and more.
Classic Movie Night – Friday, July 17 @ 6:00 PM
Looking for something “new” to watch or someone to have a movie discussion with? The Roseville Public Library will be streaming classic movies one Friday a month over the summer. July’s classic movie is “The Little Princess” with Shirley Temple! All are welcome to just watch the movie or participate in the group chat.
The link to the event will be provided here on the event calendar closer to the date of the program.
Virtual Nostalgia Trivia – Thursday, July 23 @ 6:00 PM
Come play 5 rounds of trivia with each round being a different decade with the Roseville Public Library! You can play on your own or in a team of your creation. Have your team name and captain chosen before the game starts. If your teammates are not people in your house, we recommend communicating with them on your preferred text or chat app.
You do not need to be a registered Zoom user to join this meeting, but you will need to download the app to your computer or mobile device. Your host, Jason, will read each question and put it up on the screen. You (and your team) will have about a minute to discuss the question, decide on an answer, and send it to Holly via the Zoom chat feature. **Make sure you’re only sending it to Holly and not to everyone playing!** If you have any questions please contact the Library through our Facebook Messenger. You can find us at www.facebook.com/RosevillePublicLibraryMI.
(Will resume after when the library reopens)
Looking for help with the computer? Make an appointment for a one-on-one session with one of our librarians. Bring your device and any cords needed to the lab. If you don’t have a laptop, we have a laptop at the library to work with. Each one-on-one session lasts 30 minutes. Please call the library at (586) 445-5407 and select option 3 for the Adult Reference Desk. The librarian will take your information and you will be contacted to set up an appointment.
