Novi Public Library Newsletter - June 2012
Beyond Books Newsletter
Novi Public Library
I love to scrapbook!I enjoy this hobby because I don't consider myself a very crafty person and yet when I am working with stickers, colored paper, and photos of my family I can tell a wonderful story!Usually I take part in a scrapbooking event where I meet with girlfriends and work on my projects for hours at a time.Scrapbooking also pushes me to be an avid photographer in my home, capturing the precious memories of my children. In fact, I bought a new camera just for this purpose.Recently, I tried online scrapbooking and found it to be just as much fun!
This year, I encourage everyone in the Novi community to think about what they GEEK and share your "loves" with the Library!
What Do YOU Geek?
Now it's your chance to tell us what you geek the most so we can help you explore your interests at the Library! Check out the new "Geek" display in the Library's front lobby to learn more!

New and Improved Website! The Library is thrilled to launch our redesigned website this month! Designed to be easier to navigate, more informative, and patron focused, we hope everyone in the community will find it an even more valueable resource! Tell us what you think!

What Can the Novi Library Do for YOU?
June 1st celebrates the 2nd year of operation for the new Library! In an effort to keep the Library moving forward with valuable services, programs and resources, a strategic planning committee has been formed to create a five year plan for the Library. As community members, your input is very important to us! Members of the Novi community are invited to attend a focus group session to provide feedback on how the Library can better serve YOU!

Why Do I Need to Renew My Library Card Each Year?
The annual renewal is essential in keeping accurate records for Library patrons. It is important to be able to contact our patrons regarding renewals and the status of their accounts. To do so, we must have up to date information, such as current e-mail addresses. Also, we need to insure that patrons who have an account with the Library are entitled to that account, based on residency in Novi. We are working hard to make this process as effective and convenient as possible and appreciate your understanding.
Great Resource! "Ref USA is a great database and resource. The Library really goes the extra mile to find products and programs that add value to the community!"-Tiffani
Thanks for your kind words Tiffani! We are proud to offer our library card holders free access to great databases like Ref USA, which provides business information directly from our website. Check out all our databases.
