In October, 2017, the Friends purchased two Sony Virtual Reality systems (PSVR) for the library. The VR gaming consoles are always in high demand and are regularly available for special events including our summer reading program. In the first 90 days, the PSVR systems have engaged approximately 300 patrons and their families.
The Friends recently purchased an Apple TV and iPad for the Story Time Room with interactive elements to enhance the written word and target the five practices of pre-/early-literacy of reading, writing, singing, talking and playing.
Youth Activity Room Laptop
A state-of-the-art laptop was also purchased by the Friends for use in the Youth Activity Room.

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.
