About the Library
Brighton...Naturally is an environmental initiative to connect children, families, and individuals to the natural world. Brighton…Naturally grew from conversations with longtime resident Joyce Powers. Powers, a retired Ann Arbor Public Schools media specialist and former Brighton Area Schools Board member, provided the Library with a leadership gift and in-kind environmental education resources for the Library’s collections.
The late Millie Lintner was a member of the Library's Board of Trustees. The garden is - in part - a memorial to her hard work bringing Green Oak Township into the district.
The metal flower arch is there to mark the naming of the garden in Mrs. Lintner's honor. Mr. Lintner has donated mums and other plants to enrich the garden for many years.
Library is a Certified Wildlife Habitat
The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) has recognized the Brighton District Library's property as an official Certified Wildlife Habitat site. The property attracts a variety of birds, butterflies and other wildlife by providing a wildlife-friendly landscape.
