These seven libraries also encourage community members to come together for events and programs related to that year’s book. The seven libraries composing the NLA are Commerce Township Community Library, Lyon Township Public Library, Northville District Library, Novi Public Library, Salem-South Lyon District Library, Walled Lake City Library, and Wixom Public Library.
