News from the Friends
Books on a table Our holiday sale is continuing, but sales are going strong, so therefore, inventory is decreasing daily. Hurry in for the best selection. We are looking forward to the media sale which will follow the holiday sale. If art, including watercolors, interests you, our feature shelf may be just the thing you are looking for. 

Additionally, the glass case next to the "hold" bookshelves contain higher priced times and rarer finds. To inquire about an item, fill out a form located on the Book Nook desk and place it in the plexiglass box. Someone will call you to set up a time to come in and look at/purchase the item. None of this would be possible without your generous donation, so please continue to support the Friends in this extremely giving way!

Thank you to Vibe Credit Union and Fox Run of Novi!

We are very excited to present to you our 2018-2019 Annual Report. This report displays the accomplishments of the Novi Public Library during fiscal year 2018-2019 and provides information regarding library service usage.

In addition, our  Strategic Plan for 2019-2022 provides you a glimpse of what is to come in the next three years at NPL. A lot of time was spent connecting with residents to gain feedback to improve our services, collections, programs and resources. Though just a guideline, the plan allows for flexibility to continue to hear the ideas and suggestions that come daily from our residents.
