Thank you Donors!

We have so much to be thankful for! An updated Millie’s Garden, our gorgeous pavilion, new seating around the garden and along our learning journey, interactive instruments, and a new bike rack – all because of you!


In addition, Miss Carla’s Reading House opened for families to enjoy this past summer. We are thrilled that our patrons can visit our brand new backyard house with checked out books and some time to read. Miss Carla’s Reading House was crafted by the Michigan Landscape Professionals over the course of the summer of 2023.


As our mission states, we continue to “connect, grow, and discover…together.” Our 2022-2023 Annual Appeal raised nearly $43,000 with the majority of that funding earmarked to support these outdoor improvements. We are ever grateful to our donors. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to further build our beautiful corner of the Brighton community.

Commemorative Bricks Discontinued

With the renovation of Millie’s Garden, and the way our new pavers are installed, we have discontinued our Commemorative Brick donation. 
Previously purchased bricks will line the walkway to, and the porch of, Miss Carla’s Reading House. We are planning a new commemorative donation option and hope to have more information in the coming year. Stay tuned!
