Summer in the Heights:

Come into the Dearborn Heights Libraries this summer and join one of our summer programs. We have a summer program for every age group – preschool, kids, teens and adults. We are having a puzzle and game swap, activity boxes, bingo, art classes, a Grinch Day picnic and trivia nights. At the end of summer, we will distribute school supplies and backpacks.  You can learn all about our summer programs at one of our kick offs or ask at one of our branches.
