Purchases are made through the proceeds from our book sale.
How are we funded?
The Friends of the Library generates revenue through an annual book sale held in October as well as membership fees and donations.
How can I get involved?
Anyone can join the Friends of the Library. Meetings are on the second Saturday of January, March, August, September, and November. The date for our Annual Meeting in April depends on presentation availability.

Michigan Author Karen Dybis discusses The Witch of Delray
An immigrant woman and her son are accused of murder and witchcraft in this powerful true crime story of corruption in 1930s Detroit. In 1931, the tensions of the Great Depression took hold of Detroit at every level—even spilling over into the investigation of a mysterious murder at the Delray boardinghouse. Amid accusations of witchcraft, Hungarian immigrant Rose Veres and her son Bill were convicted of the brutal killing and suspected in a dozen more. Their cries of innocence went unheeded—until one lawyer, determined to seek justice, took on the case. Following the twists and turns of this shocking story, The Witch of Delray explores the tumultuous 1930s in a city notorious for corruption and reveals the truth of Detroit’s own Hex Woman.
