Many of you have fond memories of visiting the Wixom-Wire House on the southwest corner of Wixom and Maple Roads. It is Wixom's only museum, preserving a glimpse of pioneer days. The Wixom-Wire House Museum, built in 1855, is in desperate need of repair as the home's 19th century Michigan basement is beginning to crumble. The estimated restoration cost is expected to reach $25,000. For information on donating to help save the Wixom-Wire House, please click here for the Historical Society flyer.
As part of the Library's strategic planning process, we are conducting a survey to gain community feedback regarding library services. This feedback will help guide the Strategic Planning Committee in developing a five year plan for the Library. Please take a moment to answer this brief, 9-question survey. Thank you for your input.
The Library drive up book drops have moved! Their new location is in the east parking lot, across from the playground. There is also a battery recycling drop off next to the book drops. Start using them today!

We will have five passes available per week for each of the participating organizations. Check out your pass today!
Summer hours will begin after Memorial Day and continue through Labor Day. During the summer, the Library is open Monday - Thursday 10am - 8pm and Saturday 10am - 5pm. We are closed Fridays from Memorial Day through Labor Day. 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.
