reference materials

can I access a reference book on the computer rather than come into the library. I am interested in the books listing all the businesses by type.

Logging in to patron account

I am annoyed that I have to go through a named account login page before I can get to a library-card-number (patron) login. How about a patron login link on your site's home page?

History of Homes in area

How do I find out the history of a home? I'm looking for haunted, criminal, etc. Thanks

Come Visit Turner Town

We invite you to visit the Children's Library to tour Turner Town, a Turner Syndrome and Nonverbal Learning Disabilities Awareness Campaign, during the month of February (Turner Syndrome Awareness Month). This collection of doll houses is an interactive self-teaching traveling exhibit that depicts the everyday challenges of a girl with Turner Syndrome and Nonverbal Learning Disabilities from birth and through her later teenage years. It has already been displayed in Livonia libraries, the Plymouth District Library and the Detroit Children's Museum. We are excited to have it visit us as well! Turner Town will be on display for the month of February.

For more information please visit Turner Town's website and the Turner Syndrome Society.

Mindless Popcorn Action

Au revoir, crazy European chick by Joe Schreiber — is the type of book that's great for turning your brain off and just having a good time. It's short. It's got a great initial hook (boy mistakenly takes an assassin to prom), and it's got explosions. Lots of explosions. What more can I say? Sure, the plot is ludicrous. Sure, it's a little shallow. It's no Crime and Punishment, but hey, that's the point for some: no punishment. Just action. If you're looking for a book like a summer blockbuster, then give this a try.

Zumba is a fitness class that combines dance and fitness. It is all the rage nowadays. This dance mingles Latin and International music with a fun and effective workout system. Dance routines like Cumbia, Merengue, Salsa, Mambo, Hip-Hop and Flamenco are used in this class. The fusion of Latin dance rhythms and moves provides an excellent group exercise experience.
So in partnership with Canton Township's 100 Days of Health and as a part of our multicultural programming, join us for a lively, fun session of Zumba on Saturday, January 21 at 11:00 AM.

Mens Bathrooms Pee all over floor at Urinals every day.

Hi, I use your library to study and use the men's bathroom. I can't remember a time where the floor underneath the men's urinals has been free of urine. My feet actually stick to the floor each time after using them. This happens in the majority of times I have used the bathroom. Do you actually clean the bathroom floor daily? Do the little kids pee on the floor? I cannot understand this.. I have used bathrooms in public places before, but never have seen it this bad on a reoccuring basis.

international books

I would like to have a section for arabic books.

buy book please

Verlander Named American League MVP

Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander has also been named the American League's Most Valuable Player for 2011. He is the first starting pitcher to win MVP since 1986 when Roger Clemens took the honor. Only six other pitchers in MLB history have won both the Cy Young Award and the MVP honors in the same year: the Dodger's Sandy Koufax in 1963, St. Louis' Bob Gibson and Detroit's Denny McLain in 1968, Oakland's Vida Blue in 1971, Milwaukee's Rollie Fingers in 1981 and Detroit's Willie Hernandez in 1984. Verlander received 13 of 28 first place votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America. Boston center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury came in second followed by Toronto right fielder Jose Bautista. Tigers first baseman Miquel Cabrera finished fifth.
