“Escape from Haunted Carnegie” – a JDL Escape Room

Creep and crawl your way to the Carnegie Branch for a JDL-themed Escape Room!

You receive a mysterious invitation to spend the night at the famed haunted Carnegie mansion. The goal: to escape before sunrise and collect riches beyond wildest dreams. However, it’s not as easy as it seems. Over the course of the event, players from your group will disappear making your escape all the more difficult. Players must use clues and intellect to beat JDL’s haunted mansion themed escape room.

Groups of 8 encouraged, but not required. Space is limited, so please register by calling Youth Services at (517) 788-4087 (ext. 1331).

“Our Majestic Great Lakes”

Join the Carnegie Branch for a book review and a presentation by the author, Loreen Niewenhuis.

In 2009, Loreen Niewenhuis walked the perimeter of Lake Michigan and wrote the bestselling book, A 1,000-Mile Walk On The Beach. In 2012, Loreen took another long journey, covering 1,000 miles of shoreline touching all five Great Lakes. The book about this latest adventure, A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes Walk, explores the entire Great Lakes system.

In this presentation, Loreen will take you along the shores of all five Great Lakes and many of the waterways connecting them. In words, photos, and video, you’ll explore the geology, hydrology, and natural history of the largest system of freshwater lakes in the world. She will also illuminate the threats to this massive ecosystem: invasive species, pollution, destruction of wetlands, and the gradual warming of the lakes.

Niewenhuis speaks with the authority of an expert as she has an M.S. degree in biological sciences. She raises the important questions about preserving our wild places and protecting the fragile ecosystems on which we all depend.

Please, join us as we explore the Great Lakes with author Loreen Niewenhuis.
