Exciting Youth Programs!
"I always go to the Kiddie Crafts with my son and am very excited that you have reading programs available at times we can attend. We love your library (and he loves the cafe), so we are looking forward to spending more time there." - Cindy
Thanks for your kind words Cindy! We have planned a great variety of programming for our youth, tweens, and teens as they head back to school this fall. Check out our Program Calendar for details.
September Closure and Library Hours
The Library will be closed September 3. Sunday hours (1-5pm) will resume on September 11 and continue until the Memorial Day Weekend.
Welcome Students and Parents!
As we start a new school year, remember your Library Card is your best school supply! It provides access to books and media, as well as computers, the Internet, research databases, specialized group study/teen rooms, programs, and many other resources. See the Best Library Behaviors to get the most of your library experience.
We also welcome the Ringo Kai Japanese School to Novi and cordially invite the students and their familes to the Novi Public Library. Welcome Brochure in Japanese.

Partnering with Novi Community Schools
Thank you to the nearly 500 school employees who toured the Library on August 30. We hope to continue to work together to provide the best educational resources for the students and employees of our community!
We are also partnering with the Novi Community School District to present 2 sessions of Seven Habits of Highly Successful People (Oct-Dec). This special 3-part series teaches the principles of Stephen Covey's highly praised book and shares how these principles are being incorporated into the school district. Register Now!
Thank You Shoppers! Thanks to Macy's and the participants of "Shop for a Cause" event, $590 was raised for the Library for programming initiatives. We sincerely thank our community for their ongoing support!
