“We have everyone from babies to old people,” says Michelle Rend, a children’s librarian at the Henry Ford Library.
With over 96,000 books, it is certain that anyone can find their match. Besides being the largest library in Dearborn, the Henry Ford Library is a great place to surf the web, or simply read.
The library is also a great place to study. “I notice after school is the quietest time at the library; students of all ages are studying and doing homework,” says Rend.
In addition, many people enjoy the resources the library has to offer for homework help online, and in books.
Sara Moughnieh, a teacher, comes to the Henry Ford Library very often to tutor children. “I love coming here to read,” she says.
Unlike many, Moughnieh has an interest in research books. “I enjoy reading them, and hope that the library can invest in more!”
Rend confirmed that the most popular activity at the library is reading. Because the library is filled with numerous age groups, there are definitely a wide variety of choices.
“Teenagers are interested in drama; especially romance,” Rend says. “As for adults, they usually are looking for our huge variety of mystery books.”
The atmosphere at the library is definitely pleasant and productive. That is why Rania Aoun, a frequent visitor, and her son love it so much.
“I enjoy spending time with my son at the Henry Ford Library and watching him pick out books,” says Aoun. Sure enough, the library is a place that both mother and son can enjoy.
“I love the Henry Ford Library, and I wouldn’t change a thing,” Aoun adds.
