Scares, stories and anniversaries at the CMPL
CLINTON TOWNSHIP — As October gets into full swing, the Clinton-Macomb Public Library will host all sorts of events.

Students in grades 2-12 are invited to the South Branch on Saturday, Oct. 7, to learn about insects with the Huron-Clinton Metroparks Mobile Learning Center.

The CMPL will celebrate Halloween at the Main Branch on Wednesday, Oct. 25, with its annual Monsters and Mayhem event. The party starts at 5:30 p.m. and families are encouraged to turn out for treats, crafts, stories and more. Costumes are encouraged.

Festivities will keep rolling on at the Main Branch into Thursday, Oct. 26, as the library celebrates its 20th anniversary. Visitors to the library that day can receive a cookie (while supplies last) and activities for children begin at 11 a.m. Those looking to get some free library merchandise can go on the hunt for 20 pictures hidden around the Main Branch that document the building’s history, or they can register for a library card if not already signed up.

An event on Monday, Oct. 30, will be dedicated to the macabre and mysterious. Researcher Amberrose Hammond will present a program on Mysterious Michigan at the Main Branch at 7 p.m. Topics include the Nain Rouge monster, Minnie Quay’s ghost and other supernatural subjects from around the Great Lakes state.
