Here's what's going on in town today.


Welcome to the weekend.

Local legends the Verve Pipe help East Lansing Public Library kick off its Summer Reading Program with a special performance Sunday. The Michigan-based band, known for hits like “The Freshmen” and “Photograph,” will be performing music from its two children’s CDs, “Are We There Yet?” and “A Family Album” in the ELPL parking lot. If rain is in the forecast, the show will be moved indoors. Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and picnic lunches, and $2-off passes to the East Lansing Family Aquatic Center are available for attendees. The theme for this year’s summer reading program is “Build a Better World,” and children, teen and adults are invited to participate in the summer-long series of activities. 2-3 p.m. FREE. East Lansing Public Library, 950 Abbot Road, East Lansing. (517) 351-2420, www.elpl.org.
