Curbside Delivery is Available!

We know you want to visit and access materials from your beautiful new library building. Yet, in the interest of community health, the library building must remain closed to the public. We will reopen the building and provide services safely, in phases, as soon as possible. 
 
Phase 1 of our reopening plan includes Contactless curbside delivery of books, movies and more, that you request through the online catalog, by phone or by email. See our information sheet on how to use this new service!
 
Curbside service hours are: 
     Monday - Thursday: 11 am - 6 pm
     Friday and Saturday: 11 am - 5 pm  

Please use the drive-up book drop to return library materials that you may still have at home.  Returns will be checked in and removed from your account, fine free, after a 72-hour quarantine.

Summer Reading

Puss in Boots - Summer Reading logo

The Summer Reading Challenge is almost here! Imagine and make your own story more exciting by reading all summer long.

Beginning Monday, June 8th, patrons of all ages--babies, kids, teens and adults--are encouraged to sign up online to participate in the challenge. You don’t have to be a White Lake Township Library member--the challenge is open to everyone! Keep track of the amount of time you spend reading, earn prizes, and entry into our Grand Prize Drawings. No matter what you read, it all counts: picture books, graphic novels, audiobooks, magazines, and more!

Reading during the summer is especially important for kids. Research shows that the break from school can create something called the “summer slide”. The term “summer slide” describes the loss of literacy skills for kids and teens who don’t read while school is out. Join in the Summer Challenge and visit your library from home to help encourage your children to continue to read, discover, and learn throughout the summer fun.

The Summer Reading Challenge is open for registration from June 8th - July 18th. The last day to log reading and activities is August 1st. All prizes will be available for pick up at the end of the program by appointment August 10 - 15.
