This summer the Grand Ledge Area District Library will host its' author series in our historic meeting room, right on Jefferson Street, with the doors and windows open and plants inside to create an old fashioned front porch feel, but with air conditioning available and no bugs! It runs every other Thursday night from June 19th through July 31, from 6 to 7 p.m.
