Look what the Friends Shop has for you!

  • Sunday                    1-4pm




The Friends strive to support local businesses and and carry Michigan-made and Michigan-themed products whenever possible. In addition to Friends of TPL logo tote bags and travel mugs, the Friends Shop has a great selection of unique gift items for adults, teens and children, including:


  • Jewelry
  • Fashion accessories
  • Greeting cards, stationery and gift bags
  • School and office supplies
  • Toys and games
  • Decorative serveware and home decor
  • "Emergency" items like batteries, umbrellas, sewing kits, ear buds and reading glasses


For your convenience, the Friends Shop also carries a limited selection of used books, music CDs and movies on DVD and VHS. Want more? A large selection of these can be found in the Book Shop. Proceeds from both of our shops support all the programming and various library enhancements.


Merchandise is changing all the time, so stop in often to see what is new, and check out our Facebook page for new arrivals and sales promotions.


We always welcome volunteers to help us run the Friends Shop. The cashier shifts are flexible and the Friends Shop is a great place for high school students, 16 years or older, to earn community service credit. Join us today!
