The Friends of the Southfield Public Library are a dynamic and involved group of Library supporters who truly enhance the services the Library is able to provide. The Friends purchase items not provided for in the Library’s budget, provide seed money for new services and collections, and actively promote the use of the Library to the community.
Enjoy gently used books and more all at affordable prices. We sell books, magazines, and audio-visual materials.
The Bookshelf is located on the main floor, off the Lobby– see our Calendar for when we’re open.
Friends Members receive a 10% discount on BookShelf purchases!
Your donations keep our book sales successful! We accept donations of books, magazines, and audio-visual materials in good condition all yearlong.
Take donations to the loading dock on the north side of the Library from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. Monday – Thursday. If you’d like to make an appointment, please call 248-796-4397.
