"I was searching for various high school education sites and found your site - Novi Public Library. I came across your list of Teen Online Resources here: I found the list very helpful and wanted to thank you for putting it together."

Thanks for letting us know Linda!  We try hard to not only provide a great selection of books, movies, and music, but also meaningful information.  Check out other great resources on the Library website's Database page.  

Coasting the Baseline - NoviHistorical Novi

Novi welcomed the third obelisk in the Coasting the Baseline project in a Dedication Ceremony on September 20th at the ITC Community Sports Park.  The project celebrates the early surveyors and history of Michigan's baseline (8 Mile Road) with a series of ten foot tall granite obelisk markers.  Novi's obelisk was created in cooperation with the Novi Historical Commission and several other organizations and individuals, with significant funding support from the Americana Foundation.
