lisettes listJoin us for our sixth annual Community Reads event. This fall five area libraries (Lyon Township, Northville, Novi, Salem-South Lyon, and Wixom) encourage our readers to check out a copy of this year's Community Reads title, Lisette's List by Susan Vreeland. The novel is an intergenerational story about art, love and war set in Provence, and is part historical fiction, part art history and part travelogue. Copies of the book are available at the Library. This great, multi-community event brings neighboring libraries together to strengthen community ties and promote literacy. To learn more, please visit

The Library is holding multiple events this fall tied to the Community Reads title. Adults can join us for an Autumn Colors Painting Party to create their own landscape canvas as well as join the special Between the Lines Book Discussion about the book. Families with tweens in grades 3-6 can join a special Novel Thoughts book discussion about the art-themed Chasing Vermeer. Children can also participate in an art extravaganza at a special Arts & Letters story-time for kindergartners through 2nd graders. Lastly, everyone is encouraged to attend a Meet the Author event with Susan Vreeland at the Novi Public Library. We hope you enjoy this year's Community Reads event!
