Donate & Support the Library

Due to an overwhelming response and very limited volunteer resources, we have to limit accepting donations to the 2nd/4th Thursday of the month, 10am-7pm (weather permitting).

Call the Administration Office at 248-869-7204 with questions.


Drop off donations at the back of the Library, NOT at the front doors (go to entry off of Taft Rd. by Novi High School). Click here to view a map of where donations are accepted
