Governor Whitmer has issued Executive Order No. 2020-110, which allows libraries to reopen to the public. The Northville District Library plans to reopen in phases, ensuring that protocols and procedures adhere to health and safety recommendations for both the public and Library staff. Staff is working diligently to get new procedures safely in place. Thank you to the Northville community for your continued patience!

We are getting ready for our second phase of our Reopen Plan:  Level 2: Curbside NDL. This begins June 15 (Monday – Friday, 10 am – 5 pm).  The building remains closed to the public, with a tentative reopen date of July 6. Services beginning June 15 include:

  • Curbside Pickup Service:  Reserve items by phone or online and pick up your items via contactless pickup service during your scheduled pickup time.  Library staff will call you to schedule a pickup time. Holds can only be placed on Northville owned items at this time.
  • Phone Service:  Librarians will be available 10:00 am – 5 pm to take hold requests and provide Readers’ Advisory.
  • Returning Items: We are gradually accepting returns beginning June 15 Monday – Friday only. Place items in the Drop Box or the large Return Bins. If the Drop Box or bins are filled (we do expect a large amount of returns this first week), please hold onto your items and try again the next day. All items will be quarantined for 72 hours before being removed from your record. Keep in mind items can be returned anytime with NO FINES assessed until August 31.
  • Library Services:  All services are virtual at northvillelibrary.org. Email us at  nortref@northvillelibrary.org with any questions.
  • Programs:  All programs are virtual through August. Find them on our Events Calendar.
  • Meeting Rooms:  Rooms remain closed through August. Watch the Library website for information on when room reservations will begin.

The Library’s website has full information on different levels of the Reopening Plan. Thanks to the Northville community for their continued understanding and patience.
