Exciting News From The Library
The Sunfield District Library is honored to announce it will be receiving a “Library of Michigan” award. Sunfield is just one of three libraries selected this year.

Thank you to the Sunfield Fire Department, the Sunfield Community Foundation, and the Farmer’s Picnic Committee who all wrote letters of support and recommendation. A trophy and a $1,000 cash reward will be given.
