Religion Around the World
Petoskey District Library, Lower Level Conference Room - $40/series of 4 classes or $12/class
Join North Central instructor and Pastor Toby Jones for a great discussion of the major religions, their underlying ideas and impact on history and today’s events.
The Rise of the Nones – Who Are They and How Have They Multiplied So Quickly?: Recent national attention has been given to this new “religious” category - the NONES – those with no religious affiliation. While a small percentage of Nones consider themselves atheists, more than 2/3 of them believe in God; they simply don’t want anything to do with a church or organized religion. We will examine this growing phenomenon, its impact on American culture and its future.

Paws to READ - Micky
The theory is, that by reading out loud to the dog, who doesn’t judge how well the child reads, the child’s self consciousness disappears and she gains the confidence needed to become a better reader.
Readers will need to schedule a 15 minute appointment at the Youth Services Desk or by calling 231-758-3112. Open or cancelled slots will be available on a first-come, first served basis.
