While improvements have been made it is still a bit of a disappointment compared to some other local libraries that offer many learning-infused play choices like language activities, sensory exhibits, creative outlets for both costumed and puppet plays, train tables, science exhibits, and much more UNLESS it is warm weather and you use the playground behind it. There is a cute theme on the walls and the activity room is good for small group meetings or classes, and there is a children's bathroom conveniently situated, but there is no free play area like others offer. And the library is very strict on noise, which is not conducive to young children. If all you are doing is reading &/or selecting books, or attending their classes it is a good choice. If you are looking for a destination to fill up a morning or afternoon, or a place to hold a playdate, go to a neighboring library.

When we first moved here we went to the Wixom library. It was OK nothing great but it served it's purpose. There wasn't many people there and it is kind of small. They do have computers you can use.

Business Response:

Many Improvements! Since this review was written in 2005, the Library passed a millage. With a healthy budget, the Library more than doubled the number of computers available and added thousands of new books, DVDs and other items. We've completely renovated the Children's Department and updated other areas of our building.

This is a smaller library than most. They don't have as many programs as surrounding libraries. The staff is not very friendly, at times. Not very kid frienly either, with a small kids scetion, not much for them to play with and little tolerance for kids in general.

Lots for kids! After passage of a millage in 2006, the Library completely renovated its Children's Department. It has a lively and fun animal and alphabet theme, and a wonderful Activity Room with a jungle motif.
