Harper Woods Public Library

HWPL Lower Level Unavailable Until Further Notice

On July 8, the Harper Woods Public Library staff discovered that a large
amount of water flowed into the library’s lower level after a large
rainstorm. Fortunately, neither the computers nor anything in the
collection was damaged. Unfortunately, we discovered that water got
under the carpet tiles and we must now replace the carpeting. Because
the health and safety of our patrons and staff is of primary importance,
we have closed access to our lower level including the meeting room
until further notice. For more information click here.

Thank you all for your patience during this challenging time. If you
have any questions or concerns, please feel free to talk to me or any
staff member.
