Job Seekers Lab cancelled Wednesday and Friday, will return next week

The Job Seekers Labs for Wednesday night and Friday afternoon are cancelled, as the library will be closed at these times for the Thanksgiving holiday.  The library will reopen Saturday morning with public computers available for anyone needing computer access to work on a resume, search for jobs, or file for unemployment (or do anything else, really) and the JSL will return Tuesday morning.  Happy holidays!

Food for Fines

The Westland Public Library is happy to announce we will be hosting a Food for Fines program from November 22nd until December 23rd. Anybody who has fines at the library will be able to bring in a non-perishable, unexpired good to pay for $2 worth of fines (up to $20 in fines total). This will not cover lost or damaged items, but can cover fines on those items.

Our goal is to collect 1000 goods over the course of the month. Non-fine related donations will be accepted, too. We will keep you posted here and in the library on our progress. All donated food will be collected by Gleaners Community Food Bank and distributed to various food agencies in the Westland area. To see a list of eligible food and non-food items, please stop by any of our service desks or call (734) 326-6123.

Please stop by the Circulation Desk starting Monday, November 22nd to get your past fines reduced- and feel good doing something kind for your community!
