Get ready for Summer Reading! Summer Reading starts June 1 and runs through August 5. This year's theme is Build a Better World and we have special programs planned for all ages, from babies to adults! Kids and tweens will earn a ticket to the Finale Party at Pump It Up when they read 8 hours. Teens will earn a prize bag and a ticket to the Teen Finale Party by reading 5 books, attending 5 programs and/or a combination of the two. Adults will get a $5 gift card to an area business for submitting 3 book reviews. Adults will also be entered into the weekly book bag drawing by submitting a new review for the week. Starting June 1, all ages can register and log reading online or in-person by paper. Families can also register all family members online under one account. For families using the paper logs, you can print additional copies here.
We are excited to present mobile printing at the Library! You can now send documents to the Library's Print Release Station from your phone or device following these instructions. You will need your library card number and PIN number. Just jump on our Wi-Fi, download the app, and print away!
We are excited to announce a new service for Wixom residents called Hoopla! Hoopla offers movies, tv shows, music, audiobooks, eBooks, and comic books for download and/or streaming on your computer, tablet or mobile device. There is no wait time and no holds on Hoopla items - everything is available instantly and returned automatically at the end of it’s lending period. Each cardholder may download up to 6 items per month. To access Hoopla, you just need your Wixom library card and PIN. To get started go to: hoopladigital.com and set up an account.
Hoopla is generously provided by the Friends of the Wixom Library.
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.
