Storytime at the Lighthouse

3:00 - 4:00 Mondays: August 5, 12, 19, 26

Hackley Public Library and the Muskegon Lighthouse are teaming up

to host a special storytime on Monday afternoons in July and August.  

We’ll enjoy listening to stories outside and watching ships sail through the channel.

Any children that participate can stay to climb the lighthouse tower for free with the admission of an adult.  

Visitors must be 3 feet tall to climb and sturdy shoes are recommended.


Kids Flea Market

Thursday, August 1  10:00-11:30 (rain date August 2)

Come Sell-a-brate the beginning of August!   

Here’s your chance to turn your old toys, books, and games into a little bit of spending money.

Not sure what to sell?  No worries!

We suggest old books, collectibles, stuffed animals, puzzles, and hand-made crafts.  

We also wouldn’t say no to baked goods or the traditional lemonade stand.

Make sure you don’t charge more than 50 cents per item!

Children run their own booths (adult help is recommended) and keep what they earn.

The event will move to Friday, August 2 in the event of rain.

Interested sellers should bring their own tables, chairs, or beach blankets to sell from

as well as money to make change.  

Registration is REQUIRED.  Call 231-722-8014 to sign up.  

All ages.



Monthly Makers: Robots

Monday,  August 12  5:30-6:30

Build a glowing snail or beat the heat with a LEGO fan.  

Change the color of our Spheros or send them zipping around the room.  

You’re in charge of these robots!

At this class, we’ll cover beginner through more advanced projects.  

Age 9+.
