EASTPOINTE/ROSEVILLE — The Eastpointe Memorial Library, 15875 Oak Ave., and the Roseville Public Library, 29777 Gratiot Ave., have a host of programs for the month of March, including movies, games, discussions and more. 


The Eastpointe Memorial Library’s assistant director, Sue Todd, stated in an email to the Eastsider Feb. 27 that one of the benefits of the library is bringing “the community together with shared interests.”  

“Librarians at the Eastpointe Memorial Library work hard to plan programs we hope will educate and entertain members of our community,” stated Todd. 

The library’s annual egg hunt and craft for children will take place at 6 p.m. March 21. Todd stated that participants should “be there on time, because the egg hunt tends to go fast.” 

A presentation on the history of space foods and space-food sampling will begin at 6:30 p.m. March 22. Participants will learn how space food has evolved since the 1960s, and they will also see how food containers were made for use in space and are now used by the general population. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample foods that astronauts might eat. 

Plato’s Exchange will be held at 2 p.m. March 27 to allow civil discussions of topics of interest to many people. The subject selected for March 27 is information and misinformation in the information age. 

“This program allows for many points of view to be shared for greater understanding by all people that attend,” stated Todd. 

Monday Movie Matinee will happen each Monday in March at 2 p.m. The library will show 2017 movie releases. Those interested are asked to call or visit the library for movie titles.

Adult Services Coordinator Tracy Wilson said the library has a big range of programs this month.

“We are excited for our March programs. We’ve got something for all ages, and our programs are a combination of educational and entertaining,” said Wilson. 

The Roseville Public Library will kick off the month with a family movie event featuring “The Lego Ninjago Movie” from 2 to 3:45 p.m. March 9. Refreshments will be available for purchase at a small charge to benefit the library; there is no registration required. Immediately following the event, children are welcome to stay after for the Lego club. 

For elementary kids, the library has a STEM Slime program at 2 p.m. March 10. Those interested must register for the event. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.

Mondays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Magic the Gathering games will be held in the story hour room for kids in grades six through 12. It will be casual gameplay for players of all skill levels. The library will provide some starter decks to borrow for those who don’t bring their own. No registration is required. 

Adult Trivia Night will be held in the Erin Auditorium from 6 to 7:30 p.m. March 15. Registration is required. Participants can come and test their knowledge against others in six rounds of questions. Those who wish to play as a team can bring their friends and sign up a group of four.
