Do you know a young person who would be interested in having a camp experience this summer? If so, now is the time to complete a [http://www.washtenawcampplacement.org|campership application] on behalf of a child who has dreamed of the opportunity to go away to camp. The [http://www.washtenawcampplacement.org|Washtenaw County Camp Placement Association] believes that attending a summer resident camp is a unique life experience that provides children an opportunity for growth in social, emotional and physical well-being. Their mission is to connect at-risk youth to camps through community support. WCPA is the only camping program that accepts referrals from teachers and counselors in all Washtenaw county schools, as well as human service agencies throughout the county. Applicants must be entering Grades 5 through 12 in the fall following camp. WCPA takes referrals and applications from now and throughout the summer-please keep this opportunity in mind for kids who could use it.

Participate in this year's Washtenaw Reads!

Tue, 01/10/2017 - 11:47am

[cover_image]|1479216[/cover_image]

[:http://www.aadl.org/catalog/record/1479216|$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America] is this year’s [:http://aareads.aadl.org/|Washtenaw Reads] book selection. Researched and written by Kathryn J. Edin and H. Luke Shaefer, the book details the lives of six different families who barely survive on less than $2.00 a day in various parts of the country. Eye-opening and alarming, the book also explains the laws behind the reasons that some people are forced to live on so little. The [http://www.aadl.org/node/349023| authors will speak at Rackham Auditorium] on Tuesday, February 7 at 7:00p.m. The event includes time for questions and book signing.

The AADL is also hosting several more intimate discussions of the book. The first of these takes place on Wednesday, January 25 at 7:00 p.m. in the Downtown Library multipurpose room. The second will occur on Sunday, February 12 at 3:00 p.m. at Westgate Branch in the Westside Room. All are welcome to attend these guided discussions, with no registration required. Participants may want to bring a copy of the book—available at all AADL locations—to reference during the discussion.
