In addition to Friends events, you can support the Friends of the Wixom Library through Amazon Smile. Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice: the Friends of the Wixom Library. Click to access Amazon Smile, sign in with your Amazon account, and type in “Friends of the Wixom Library”. The Friends appreciate your thoughtfulness and support.


Kroger Community Rewards Program

The Friends have enrolled in the Kroger Community Rewards Program. If you shop at Kroger and enroll your Kroger Plus card, a portion of your purchases will be distributed to the Friends each quarter. It’s a great way to support your Library every time you shop at Kroger!

Anyone can participate in this program by registering online. Start by going to https://www.kroger.com/i/community/community-rewards. If you already have an account, you can sign in, go to Community Rewards, and select the Friends by using our account numberAN206. When you enter the number, you will see our name appear – Friends of the Wixom Library – so you can verify that you are enrolled correctly.

If you have a Kroger Plus Card but do not have an account, you will first have to create an account. Be sure to have your Kroger Plus card handy. Once your account is created, you can add the Friends under Community Rewards. Once your card is registered under the program, just scan the card or use the phone number related to your registered Kroger Plus card when shopping for each purchase to count.


Recognition Tree

Leaves for the Recognition Tree may be purchased for $100 each. The leaves are bronze with black engraved letters. They may be in the form of a memorial or a donation to the library and may be purchased by individuals or businesses. Forms for the Recognition Tree are available in the lobby and PDF iconlinked here (PDF).
