Free event, One-Man-Play

...Read More

Thursday, Sept. 28 at 6:30pm at Coleman Area Library.  Doors open for refreshments at 6pm. 

Raymond Goodwin's one-man-play "The Last Man in Merrinsville" will tell the story of a 30 year relationship between a station agent at a fictional small town Train Depot and a local school teacher.  Join us for this FREE event and get swept away in this fascinating dramatic interpretation of loss, loyalty and love.

"Henry Ralson died in 1989, but his ghost has been hanging around the abandoned depot at Merrinsville ever since. Henry was the station agent in Merrinsville for thirty-two years and an idle comment to a reporter in his retirement has haunted him as much as he has haunted the depot. He would like nothing more than for an audience and a chance at redemption! Listen as he tells the story of life at the depot, his courtship of the local schoolteacher, and of Merrinsville itself.  A one-man play about loss, loyalty, and love.”  Recommended audience: ages 16 years old and above.

About the author: Raymond Goodwin is a 2011 Michigan Notable Author of the book Sawdusted: Notes From a Post-Boom Mill. He works in Human Resources at Central Michigan University and writes/performs one man plays in his spare time. He does not pretend to be a trained actor but his natural stage presence and mastery in the art of storytelling will make any audience smile.

Dogs @ the Library

Reading with Dogs!

Therapy Dogs International’s “Tail Waggin’ Tutors” program encourages children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener and furry friend to read to that won’t laugh at them if they make a mistake or stumble over a word, but rather lie next to them and enjoy the story being read to them.

Kautchi the German Shepherd, a registered Therapy Dog, will be at the Coleman Area Library on select days and he would love to hear a story!  Stop by the library to sign up to read with Kautchi.
