Food for Fines results!

The Westland Public Library is proud to announce that we received almost 1100 food items during our Food for Fines program, resulting in almost 900 meals for people in need (the most among the 48 libraries participating in this April event). The library thanks Gleaners Community Food Bank, and its collecting partners, Biggby Coffee, and the Westland Friendship Center. Thank you for helping us help so many in need!

"Here. There. Everywhere." NASA exhibit

The Westland Public Library is proud to host the NASA-sponsored Here. There. Everywhere. exhibit (http://hte.si.edu) in its Faust (fireplace) Area during the month of May. The exhibit includes 22 different banners, video footage, and an interactive display table showing how the laws of physics apply in our world, in our universe, and, as far as we know, everywhere. The exhibit is available for viewing during regular library hours. Please see the Events pages in our Children's, Teen, and Adult Departments for upcoming programs celebrating the exhibit. For more space and science-related videos, blogs, and activity guides, visit the Here. There. Everywhere. website.
