The Macomb County Genealogy Group and Mount Clemens Public Library are pleased to announce an update to the Macomb County Cemetery Master Index. The update adds 12,085 names to the master index, including information on burials in Clinton Grove Cemetery since the original transcription of 1977, as well as data from St. Mary's Cemetery, New Baltimore, Beth Tephilath Moses Cemetery in Clinton Township, and many others.

Our thanks go out to Macomb County Genealogy Group members and library volunteers Gail Campbell Schulte, Ann Faulkner and the late Carolyn Horton, whose indexing efforts made this update possible.

Summer Reading Club

Four simple steps will get preschool read-to-me, elementary and secondary school age readers prizes this summer:

1.   Borrow books from Mount Clemens Public Library
2.   Write the number of pages you read from each book by the title on your due date receipt.
3.   Add up all pages read and put the total at bottom of receipt.
4.   Bring your receipt back for prizes each time you return books.

Preschool children will receive a prize for every 5 picture books read to them.  Kindergarten through second grade readers will receive a prize for every 150 pages read.  Third grade through high school readers will receive a prize for every 250 pages read.  The best times to get prizes are: Monday and Wednesday from 9 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and Tuesday and Thursday from 1 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.

We are looking forward to helping your family "Dig into Reading" this summer!  Check the Library Events Calendar for summer programs each Tuesday at 2 p.m. starting on June 11 with "Dig into Reptiles!" presented by Michael Brophy of R.E.P.T.I.L.E., Inc. and ending on Tuesday, July 23 with a puppet show, "Digbie Digs Deep" presented by Nancy Penvose.
