Oakdale's Castle

When I first moved to Lapeer County in the late 1990's, I kept hearing people making reference to Oakdale and talking about the Castle and as I drove around the city of Lapeer, I kept looking for buildings or some sign of the fabled campus. I didn't know until I became a reference desk assistant at the Marguerite deAngeli Library that despite its relatively recent closing (about 6 years at the time) that most of it had already been demolished. Answering questions for patrons about Oakdale only sparked my curiosity more.

The Free Box

By Lorry Traver

My favorite thing at any garage sale is the free box, though it can be slightly frightening to peer inside to see what treasures or perhaps scary closet creatures the sale owners are offering. However, it’s safe to assume that when you are offered something free at the Lapeer District Library, it is far from scary. We aren’t offering you anything that we wouldn’t find useful ourselves. While we offer a wide variety of services, providing free notary service is perhaps one of the least known about but most popular for patrons.
