"The Novi Library just gets better and better...I just had to let you know we're loving the new freegal music download service that started yesterday. It's a great way to get some of our favorite songs. Thank you!" - MJ Pine
Thanks for your input MJ! We hope all our patrons enjoy downloading free music using freegal from the Library website as much as you! Try it today!

The program welcomes new babies, who are residents of Novi and born at Providence Hospital, with their first book bag. The bag is filled with a book, bib, onesie, and community information - all to promote the importance of reading to infants. An average of 20 bags/month has been provided to Novi's newest residents through this program.
