Adopt an Author
Due to declining property tax values and reductions in state aid, the Library's budget is shrinking. Despite this, the Library is busier than ever! We will do our best to remain the best educational and entertainment value in town. Would you like to help?! If you are an avid reader, consider participating in our new Adopt an Author program.
Here's how it works: let the Library know which author(s) you would like to adopt. Each time your adoptee publishes a new book, the Library will ask you for $30. For your donation, we'll make you the first one in line to get the book as well as grace it with a book plate acknowledging your contribution. This program will help us keep more copies of best sellers on the shelf for everyone to enjoy. Thank you to all potential "parents"!

Memorials and Tributes
Recognize a loved one or commemorate a special event with a gift to the Wixom Public Library. The items purchased with your gift will be shared and treasured by the entire Wixom community.
A Library Memorial or Tribute is a special way to recognize, thank or remember a special person or milestone event. The Library will place bookplates with your tribute message in the new materials purchased with your donation. We will also send a letter acknowledging your thoughtfulness to the people you specify. Memorials and tributes enhance the Library’s collection by adding items that might not be purchased otherwise. The entire Wixom community will appreciate your thoughtful gift for years to come.

Wixom Historical Society
Many of you have fond memories of visiting the Wixom-Wire House on the southwest corner of Wixom and Maple Roads. It is Wixom's only museum, preserving a glimpse of pioneer days. The Wixom-Wire House Museum, built in 1855, is in desperate need of repair as the home's 19th century Michigan basement is beginning to crumble. The estimated restoration cost is expected to reach $25,000. For information on donating to help save the Wixom-Wire House, please click here for the Historical Society flyer.
