- Between March 20th and April 28th, you can drop off non-perishable food items to benefit Gleaners Community Food Bank. Donations received at the Wixom Public Library will be donated to Hospitality House. During the donation period, we are offering a Food for Fines program. For every non-perishable food item you donate during these dates, $1.00 will be forgiven from your fines, with a maximum of $5.00 forgiven per library card. This program is a collaborative effort organized by Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan and local libraries.

ESL students are invited to join a special ESL book club! We will meet Fridays at 2:30 p.m. The next session's book will be The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon, starting May 5th.

We're happy to announce we have started a 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program, encouraging all Wixom families and caregivers to read 1000 books with their young children before they enter kindergarten. Studies have shown that families who start reading aloud to their children at birth help strengthen their language skills and build their vocabulary. There will be prizes for kids when they read 100, 500, 800 and 1000 books. They can also receive a special sticker for every 100 books read. Just register your child on our Beanstack site and the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten program will appear as a program as soon as you sign in! You can register and track your child's reading here.
