We connect you with the books you love, the information you need, and the world you live in.

The Redford Township District Library is a vital asset in the community.

  • We provide educational support, promoting early literacy and lifelong learning.
  • We offer free Internet access and computer training, assisting job seekers, students, business people, and anyone who wishes to build their skills.
  • Our friendly, knowledgeable reference librarians help users find answers fast.
  • We are a gathering spot, offering quiet study as well as group meeting spaces.
  • We house a strong print, audio-visual and electronic collection to inform and entertain.
  • We host engaging educational activities for all ages.

The Library is here for all residents, but our valuable services come at a cost. Local property tax collection accounts for nearly 80% of the Library’s annual revenue. With the economic decline, tax dollars are down a whopping 44% from 2008 levels. To make ends meet, the Library has reduced hours, cut employee benefits, and eliminated certain programs. Although not a sustainable solution, we’ve also drawn heavily on savings – because we recognize that our community needs us most when times are tough.

Research indicates that libraries provide a solid return on investment. For every dollar of public library funding, four times that amount – if not more – is put back into the community. Please show your support. Make sure the Library has the funding it needs to help individuals and our community thrive. Use the Library and spread the word about its tremendous value. We appreciate your patronage, your support, and your generous donation. Thank you!
