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.

Summer Reading 2014 is underway with programs for all ages! Adults can participate in the Literary Elements Club by simply picking up book review forms at the Information Desk and then start reading. Reading 5 books will enter you in the Grand Prize drawing for a Kindle Fire. Teens entering grades 7-12 can participate in Spark a Reaction. Teens can either read 20 hours or read 5 books, attend 5 programs, or read/attend a combination of 5 to earn 3 tickets for the Grand Prize drawing. Children and tweens can participate in the Fizz Boom Read Club. Every child who reads (or is read to) 8 or more books will earn a ticket to the Fizz Boom Read Closing Celebration. Tweens will earn a ticket to the Closing Celebration by finishing all 3 checkpoints in their Case File.
Registration for all ages is in-person and on-going. Visit the Event Calendar to view summer reading programs for all ages. Thank you to the Friends of the Library for their generous support of our summer reading programming!
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.
