|Friends Library Store|
The store, which is operated entirely by volunteers, is a gift boutique located in the lobby of the library. It stocks everything from Michigan-themed giftware and accessories, Pewabic tiles and vases, and unique home décor items, to novel children’s toys, bookends and rock and mineral specimens.
The mission of the Friends Library Store is to provide merchandise which fulfills the educational, informational, recreational and cultural interests of the community served by the library.
Are you interested in working in the store? Volunteers are needed to work just 3 - 4 hours a week, especially Tuesday evenings and Saturdays. Contact Wynn at 248/650-3731.
