The Main Library is home to a beautiful mural, hand-drawn and painted by artist Dennis Orlowski. The mural depicts the history of Clinton and Macomb Townships and includes special touches, such as people affiliated with the building of the Main Library. Orlowski used the theme of transportation to move the history of the mural forward. Orlowski is an art teacher in the Detroit Public Schools. The mural was a gift from the William W. Lee Family.
The Friends of the Library offer a permanent display of gently used book for the public to purchase. Titles change frequently. We feature fiction (mystery, romance, science fiction, etc.), nonfiction for adults and youth. The Used Book Nook is located at the Main Library in the cafe area on the first floor.
The Friends Used Book Nook offers the same great quality and prices as the Friends of the Library Used Book Sale, except that this service will be offered year-round. Prices will range from $0.25-$5+.
