ENCORE is here!

We are happy to announce the unveiling of our new library automation system.  This new system, ENCORE, will provide a more user-friendly way to search for books, videos and all other items in the library. In addition, links to online research resources are easily available. We appreciate all your patience as we migrated to this system and believe that you will like all the new features available with ENCORE. As always, the library staff is dedicated to providing the best technology and services available to all its users.

Summer Concerts

The Westland Public Library is sorry to announce the cancellation of the Summer Concert Series for the 2013 season while the Westland Veterans Association constructs the Veterans Memorial in the space currently occupied by the library pavilion. The future venue of the Summer Concert Series has yet to be determined. Look for more information on future summer concerts on the city of Westland website (cityofwestland.com) in the spring of 2014. In the meantime, check out neighboring communities for free summer concerts including Livonia, Plymouth, and Canton.
