Sending a big hello from Hackley Library! As many already know, due to Governor Whitmer’s statewide mandate, Hackley Public Library is temporarily closed, in efforts to reduce the spread of COVID 19.
Our current plan is to reopen to the public on Tuesday, April 14. While things are subject to change, our goal is to provide our community with enough information about upcoming programs as best we can. Please see below what events we have scheduled for the remainder of April. All events are Free to the public.
Feel free to contact us through Facebook with questions.
*Please note: Any of these upcoming events are subject to change due to COVID 19 status.
