Renovation Project Update

Construction on our library is forging ahead on budget and on time! We plan to reopen our library with full services in October as originally scheduled. Before that, we need to pause services to move into the renovated building and prepare for the public as we did when we moved into our temporary location.

Our last day open at Marshall School will be July 29. We will be temporarily closed again until we reopen at 6123 Central City Parkway in October.

For more information and an updated timeline, please see our Library Expansion & Renovation Project page.

Westland Seed Library

The Westland Seed Library is now open! Our seed library is a collection of seeds that are freely available to community members. You may borrow seeds to take home, grow, and enjoy, with the intention of saving seeds at the end of the growing season to return to the seed library for others to borrow next season. Stop by the library to check it out!
