Your local public library has so much more than just books.  That's why we bring you "Beyond Books," a monthly conversation with the Ann Arbor District Library about all the activities and services they offer.

89.1 WEMU's Lisa Barry talks with Library Communications and Marketing Manager Rich Retyi and Erin Helmrich about the library's book publishing program, and Rich talks about all the different activities the library has for the local community.

Ann Arbor resident Cathy Gendron describes herself as "someone with a serious need to draw," and that need has led to quite a career.  She talks about her artistic journey with WEMU's David Fair and Arts Alliance CEO Deb Polich in this week's "creative:impact."

You may not know it but, when it comes to publishing,  Washtenaw County is one of the biggest and most impactful communities in the country.  A prime example is Thomson-Shore, Inc. in Dexter.  In this week's "creative:impact," WEMU's David Fair and Deb Polich of The Arts Alliance catch up with the President of the creative publishing house, Kevin Spall.
