the Germination Station

The ability to read and write opens doors, and gives us the tools to achieve our dreams and goals. The Mount Clemens Public Library is committed to promoting literacy in our community so we can all grow and thrive together. We are excited to launch our new literacy initiative, the Germination Station!
