Art@ the Library: Waterford Twp. From the Air, 60 Years Ago

Waterford Twp From the Air, 60 Years Ago is an exhibit of aerial photography that was taken by Homer Tinney after WWII. He was hired by businessmen, realtors, developers and builders to take aerial photos of real estate of most of Oakland County. The exhibit includes notable lakes, cities, towns, gulf courses and commercial/industrial properties in the Waterford and Clarkston area. This exhibit will run through October in the Library lobby. It also features photography by Randy Rieth who created the exhibit. Email Randy Rieth rdrieth@sbcglobal.net if you have questions about this exhibit.

Tenants and Landlords

A recent report in the news said that U.S. apartment vacancies have hit a 23 year high.  We hope that's translating into lower rents for Waterford's apartment dwellers.  Did you know there's a useful reference booklet  for tenants and landlords about their rights and responsibilities in rental relationships available at the library? It's called, "Tenants and Landlords: a practical guide".  Pick one up free at our Leggett branch library or in the adult department of the main library, courtesy of your state representative or state senator.
