Teen Book Club
Lindsay Fricke, Information Services Librarian, partnered with Sue Johnson, President of the Friends of the Novi Library, in applying for Community Financials Summer of Sharing grant. The Friends of the Novi Library were awarded $1,000 to be used towards the startup of a teen book club. Teens will have input on the book choice and select participants will receive a free copy of the book. We hope to engage the members with inspiring activities to enhance the book choice.

Raising a Reader in Novi
This year the Novi Public Library and the Novi Community School District are partnering to launch a preschool reading initiative that will encourage parents to work with their young child (ages 3-5) with early learning and literacy. Reading is critical to a young person's development and school achievements and the Novi Library wants to be an important part of that development. We would like you to participate in this free program which encourages you to read 1,000 books with your child before they begin kindergarten!
Thank you to the Friends of the Novi Library, Vibe Credit Union, Novi Rotary and Novi Community School District for sponsoring this program. Your support of reading, education and growth to the community is priceless!
Thank you to the Friends of the Novi Library for their financial contributions to purchase the 3D Printer! The purpose of the 3D printer is to provide the community with access to emerging technology that encourages the design and creation of innovative projects.

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.
