Please take a moment to look around and become familiar with what the site has to offer. You'll find information about upcoming programs, forms for submitting suggestions, and many electronic resources for research or for finding the latest best sellers. Also feel free to stop by and visit us. The building is located on a beautiful wooded site on White Lake Drive in Whitehall, adjacent to the bike trail. The wonderful staff carries out the library's goal of "serving the community and enhancing lives" by providing outstanding children's and adult programs. We also offer a diverse collection of materials in a variety of formats, all in a comfortable and welcoming environment.
Oh my goodness, December is already here! We have been so busy with programs and grants this year that the time has just flown by.
The holiday season is a time for giving. Please continue to keep in mind the Kids’ Food Basket located in the library for donations of food or other items (sandwich or snack size zipper-lock bags). They provide sack suppers to children here in West Michigan who would otherwise go without. Lists of needed items are by the basket in the library.
Of course, the library always needs donations for books, magazines and programs. Now is a good time to give so we can plan for the upcoming year.
The staff are busy doing our year-end shopping for books, so many new books will appear on our shelves. They are also putting out fun things for youth and adults to do while in the library. If you are feeling stressed or just need something different to do, feel free to pick up a coloring page to work on either in the library or at home. Colored pencils will also be available for use in the library.
Before we know it, January will be here. The award-winning January Series of Calvin College is coming to Whitehall. From Jan. 6 through Jan. 26, 2016, White Lake Community Library will once again be one of 48 remote webcast sites worldwide to broadcast one of the nation’s leading lecture and cultural arts series. The experts will be discussing a wide range of today’s most relevant topics, including foreign affairs, global health, interfaith cooperation, autism and cyber security. The January Series lectures will be video streamed live at the library each weekday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. The lectures are free and open to the public. Guests are invited to bring a sack lunch. Beverages will be provided. For more information, contact the library or go to our web page.
