Novi Public Library
August 2012
Dear Syl,

Enjoy your Summer @ the Library!NPL exterior
As shown in the photograph above, we are greeted most summer mornings by patrons ready to explore the Library's books, music, programs, and resources.  Often we welcome as many as 250 people within the first 30 minutes of opening our doors.  One big draw this summer has been the very successful Summer Reading programs, with over 1,570 participants this year.  Thank you for your support and don't forget that August 4 marks the end of this year's programs - so track the last of your summer reading minutes and stop by the Library to collect your prizes!
