In an innovative new partnership, PNC Bank, The Chamber Music Society of Detroit, and the Novi Public Library bring world class chamber music to Novi.  These free, one-of-a-kind concerts, featuring internationally acclaimed artists will introduce chamber music in an entertaining and interactive way.  The first concert in the series will showcase The Shanghai Quartet (shown above), a group internationally renowned for passionate musicality and commitment to education.

Thank You!
The Scrapbook for a Cause event held on January 21st raised $340.  Proceeds from the event will help offset the costs of performers and programs offered to the youth in the Novi community by the Library.  Special appreciation to Maria's Italian Bakery and Penn Station for donating food for the event and to our 

scrapbooking consultant, Mary Gantt.  If you missed this one, don't worry!  The Library is planning another scrapbooking event this summer.
