Volunteers Needed to Sort and Shelve!
Volunteers are needed to help sort through donated books that are
given to the Novi Library for the Friends’ Book Nook. Volunteers are
also needed on Thursday to help put the new books on the appropriate
shelves in the Book Nook. Please call Carol at 248-348-6473, if you can help us in any way.
Book Nook Book Sales
The Friends operate a used book store called The Book Nook which
is just off to the right of the Main Library Entrance across
from the stairs. It is open anytime the Library is open. It is
staffed with a volunteer several hours most days. When a
volunteer is working, they can make change for you and you can
purchase items from the glass cases. Otherwise you can pay for
your book purchases by dropping cash or a check into the Honor
Box. The Honor Box is attached to the wall adjacent to the
entrance of the Book Nook.
In 2014 sales from the Book Nook and our special events
including the Vintage Book sales were almost $22,000. These
funds along with the dues from our memberships are used to
support a variety of programs including:
