We are happy to announce that the Library now has a subscription to the digital magazine service Flipster! Flipster was purchased by the Friends of the Library with funding from the Million Penny Project. Wixom Public Library card holders can read digital issues of magazines on their computer, phone or tablet. iPad users are also able to download the Flipster app for offline reading. To access Flipster, click here and enter your library card number.
The Fall 2014 edition of The Source is now available and registration for our fall programs has begun! Click here to view an online version of The Source or drop in at the Library to pick up a print copy. We are excited to present a variety of programs for all ages and hope to see you at one or more of the programs. Adults can Craft with Chalkboard Paint, explore the craft brewing process, and learn how to Journal to Reduce Stress. Teens in grades 7-12 are invited to create their own zombie look at the Zombie Makeup Workshop and bring Harry Potter to life at Recreating Harry. Tweens in grades 3-6 can join us for T-Shirt Crafts and Novel Thoughts Lunch Bunch. Families and children can join us for drop in story-times, celebrate Hello Kitty and Pokemon at the Kawaii Party as well as trick-or-treat at the Annual Halloween Happening. Visit the event calendar today to explore fall activities and to register for specific programs!
Thank you to the Wixom community for your generous contributions to the Friends of the Library Million Penny Project! The campaign has officially wrapped up and raised $8,600 for new technologies to benefit Wixom Public Library patrons. We are in the process of purchasing 3 new computers for the Children's Department, a new adult computer with creative software programs, a third iPad in the Children's Department (in addition to the two iPads purchased already), and an iPad for the teen and adult areas. Continue to watch for additional technology purchases. Please click here to read the Friends of the Library thank you message. We did it!
Due to continued financial constraints, the Library will once again eliminate Friday hours of service this summer (from May 30th through August 29th). We will also be closed during the Memorial Day holiday weekend, Independence Day holiday weekend, and the Labor Day holiday weekend. The Wixom Public Library Board is committed to operate in a fiscally responsible manner and despite having to make these hard financial decisions, we are dedicated to providing quality library services that promote both educational and cultural growth for the Wixom Community.
