Yes we are! Our Bennett Civic Center and Carl Sandburg Libraries have now fully open. Fully vaccinated patrons (meaning those who completed their final dose of a safe and effective vaccine at least 14 days ago) will no longer need to wear a mask, but patrons who are not yet fully vaccinated must continue to wear a mask or face covering to protect themselves and others. We will provide reference services in person and via telephone or email, computers are available for use up to two hours per day, and socially distanced seating has been added for your convenience. Curbside and Walk-Up pickup are still available. Schedule your curbside pickup appointment by calling (734) 466-2491 at Civic Center Library or (248) 893-4010 at Sandburg Library. Meeting room use is available for library programs. Meeting room reservations for non-library use will be resumed after Labor Day.

The Friends will resume accepting used book donations at the Bennett Civic Center Library beginning August 16. Please remember that we can only accept items in good condition. No encyclopedias, magazines, vhs tapes or cassette tapes will be accepted. Please limit your drop-offs to 5 boxes or bags per day so the Friends of the Library are not overwhelmed with their sorting duties.
