12 cars were entered into our 3D Car Pine Wood Derby Race on August 10! Thank you to everyone who participated!

Members of the e-NABLE Committee attended the Lucky Fin Project and Maker Faire-Detroit conferences to distribute 3D printed arms and took requests for smaller arms. Thank you to Dr. Webber, Assistant Superintendent for the Novi Community School District, for allowing us to borrow additional 3D printers to accomplish our goal of printing 40 arms for distribution at the Marker Faire.    

New to the Library - VOX Books
Vox Books This August, VOX Books were added to the Youth Collection. Each VOX book has a built in audio player so that guests can read and listen to their favorite picture books without having to use a CD player. There is also a headphone jack making them a great option for travel-just plug your headphones in and you are all set. Each book is good for about 150 plays before needing to be charged, which the library will take care of. We are very excited to offer these books to our guests!

Are you fluent in French or German? Or a native speaker? Novi Public Library is seeking substitute conversation group leaders! These sub-leaders would fill in when the group leader is unable to do so. If you are interested, please contact Shannon O'Leary at soleary@novilibrary.org

Do you have a box of photos sitting in your closet you've been meaning to scan so they don't get lost or ruined? Perhaps you have a family member wanting a copy of those photos. Well here's your chance to get the project checked off your to-do list!

NPL's iCube has an Epson Fastfoto Scanner! The scanner can load up to 35 photos and sizes from 3"x5", 4"x5", and 5"x7". You can also scan individual photos if you have a special 8"x10" photo you want to copy. Once the photos are scanned, you have the option of emailing them or saving them onto a flash drive. We recommend you bring your own flash drive.
