Community Reads

The Neighborhood Library Association (NLA) is a group of five area libraries in a collaborative partnership. The goal is to bring members of their communities together to read and discuss the same book in an annual Community Read. These five libraries also encourage community members to come together for events and programs related to that year's selected book. The five libraries composing the NLA are: Lyon Township Public Library, Northville District Library, Novi Public Library, Salem-South Lyon District Library and Wixom Public Library.

Visit the Neighborhood Library Association's Community Reads website for more information.

2014 Community Read's title will be announced August 15, 2014.
