Friends, we are looking for volunteers to help staff a book sale booth on the library property during the DIY street fair, Sept. 17-19. A few hours of your time would go a long way in making this a success. Please let us know if you are interested here, or you may email us at[at] or in person at the Friends’ Store in the Library. We will respond to your interest with more information and details as they become available. Likely duties will include set-up and breakdown of the booth, meet and greet customers along with promotion of the Library and Friends Membership information, and book sale transactions.

Thanks for your support!

Kevin Yezbick

President, Friends of the Ferndale Library

Friends! Have you already joined the Friends of the Ferndale Library but are looking to contribute more? This weekend is your chance! The Library would like to have a booth at the Green Cruise this weekend and needs volunteers to staff it in shifts or outright from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We’re looking for people who would like to talk about the Library and promote membership in the Friends. Does this sound like something you’d be interested in? If so, contact us at[at] or simply leave a comment here.

We’ve had our sneak peek and our community preview.  Now the fun really begins.  The new Ferndale Public Library opens its doors to the public tomorrow, Monday, August 2 at 9am.

Two local businesses have generously agreed to be there  to provide a little something to those who show up early: coffee from Chazzano Coffee Roasters, 1737 E. Nine Mile, 248-691-4256, and doughnut holes from The Fritter Shop, 741 E. Nine Mile, 248-545-7295. Thanks to these local businesses for being with us “from day 1.”  Their gifts are truly a case of “while supplies last” and we don’t know how long they will, so show up right at 9am if you can!

Thanks again to the folks at Chazzano and the Fritter Shop.
