March is National Reading Month and the Novi Public Library is encouraging the Novi community to read this month! Reading is a key component of education and professional development, and has long-lasting health benefits, such as helping improve cognitive function, memory, vocabulary and so much more.
If you don’t already have a Novi library card, stop in and visit! Novi residents can sign up for a free library card using a valid picture ID and proof of Novi residency. The Library is open Monday-Thursday, 10am-9pm, Friday & Saturday, 10am-6pm and Sunday, 12-6pm. Now that you have a card, you can check out all of the reading materials the Library has to offer! Search the online catalog
to find a book in the collection or place a hold for it to get sent to the library. Browse the shelves for books, newspapers, magazines, audiobooks, and international language books and newspapers.
