more than $52,000 mainly from the sale of used books. The Friends' major
fundraiser is the library's ongoing used book sale. Proceeds
from Friends' fundraising events have been used to purchase
furniture and computer equipment, as well as to support our
summer reading program for children. The Friends also sponsor a
scholarship for graduating seniors at Novi High School.
