Friends of the Library Scholarship
Each year the Friends award a $1000 scholarship, based on scholastic achievement and community service, to a high school senior residing in Novi. The scholarship committee agreed unanimously that Olivia Regnier submitted an outstanding application. The scholarship will support her studies at the University of Michigan to become an English teacher.
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:
Summer Reading Program
Book Nook Price List
Specially Priced Books
Newer Fiction and Non-Fiction, Specialty and Gift Quality Books - price as marked.
