Jerry Dunneback introduced Jennifer Osborne who described a full array of services, including many digital features, available at the Brighton District Library. There are a number of demographic and other marketing data bases that are especially useful for businesses, as well as investment aps, Wi-Fi hot spots, and aps for downloading books, magazines and music. There is also a Library of Things within the library that stocks a number of useful items to check out. Anyone who lives or works within the library district lines can have a library card. The district covers all of Brighton City, all of Green Oak Township, and that part of Brighton and Genoa townships that are within the Brighton school district.
