Our Final Week of Big Read 2012 at Cromaine Library!
Bring your kids, 3rd grade and up, to Village Manor to talk with and hear stories from some of the Village's residents. Let your kids hear what it was like "back in my day!" Before color TV, video games and ereaders.

Monday, April 23 at 6:30 pm Dominican University Professor and Mark Twain expert Dr. Chad Rohman, will visit Hartland to talk about the time period that Tom Sawyer was written, and the importance of keeping Twain's work fully intact. He will discuss the recent changes made to "Huck Finn" and how altering this text will affect our classics.
What is it like to travel on the Mississippi River? Join us as Salty Dog Travel owner Louise Weaver shows us photos, film and explains a bit on the history of traveling the river plus how we can travel it today! Register - Crossroads.
This amazing documentary film will take us on a "cavers" journey to Greenland, Yucatan and the Grand Canyon. Climbing, twisting, swimming, dropping into another world that most of us will never reach. With only one cave in the State of Michigan, Bear Cave in Buchanan, this is an adventure that you will want to see!
Mark Twain will visit Hartland Music Hall to tell a few jokes, some great stories and take us all back to the time when "Tom Sawyer" was written. Free and open to the public. Join us at the Hartland Music Hall.
