Beginning Sunday, October 8, 2017, the Detroit Public Library will restore Sunday service at Main Library! Sunday hours were discontinued in 1981 as a result of budget cuts.
In addition to restoring Sunday hours at Main Library, for the first time ever, two branches will also be open on Sunday; the Redford Branch, 21200 Grand River at McNichols, and the Wilder Branch, 7140 E. Seven Mile Rd at Van Dyke. Hours of service for Main, Redford and Wilder will be 1 – 5 pm, on Sundays, October – May.

For the past 23 years, the Partners Committee, a group of young professionals, have worked tirelessly to raise awareness and philanthropic dollars for the cancer research program at the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute. That tradition continues as the Partners Committee gears up for the 24th Annual Partners Night, which will be Saturday, Oct. 28, at the M1 Concourse in Pontiac, Mich.
This year’s event celebrates the accomplishments made possible by The Partners Events which continue to drive the future of cancer research at Karmanos. Since the Partners Committee began, Partners Events have raised more than $16 million to support Karmanos’ world-renowned scientists conducting ground-breaking research, which helps lead to new and advanced treatment options and supportive post-treatment care for cancer survivors. Proceeds from this year’s event will support the purchase of a Micro-PET/CT scanner, research technology critical for the evaluation of imaging approaches to assess cancer risk, detect cancer, help develop new drugs, guide treatment and monitor therapies.

WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 28, 6:30 p.m. – midnight
