Events and Book Sales

Book donations for our book sales are always welcome! Take some time to check your bookshelves for unused items. We are especially in need of clean, current donations. Children's books are very popular as well as videos, DVDs and music CDs. Library staff is more than happy to provide you with a tax receipt for that purpose. Drop your books off at the Library at any time!

Over the years, the Friends of the Wixom Public Library have made nearly $100,000 in special purchases for the Library. Wow! That’s a lot of 50-cent used books! Thank you to our residents for such strong support of the Friends’ used book sales – every little bit helps!
