Welcome to our website!

Melvindale Public Library pictureMelvindale Public Library is a part of The Library Network, which unites more than 60 libraries throughout Wayne and Oakland county.

Is there a book you'd like, but it's not available at your local library? Speak with your librarian and they'll help you to find the book at another library-or you can order it through our shared catalog online.

Your interloan book will be shipped to the library of your choice and held for you behind the desk, free of charge! Most books take about a week to make it to our library and they'll be held for you for 7-10 days. We currently ONLY get interloaned book deliveries on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

We have a large FREE DVD selection. You make check-out 3 FREE DVDs per household (not per card, per street address). In addition you may also check out 1 RENTAL DVD per household (not per card, per street address). The most DVDs your family may check out is: 3 Free DVDs & 1 Rental DVD: no matter how many cards your family has you are limited PER HOUSEHOLD. Free DVDs check-out for 7 days. Rental DVDs check out for only 3 days. All DVDs must be returned during open hours (not in our drop box) and LATE FEES for DVDs are: $1 per day for EACH late DVD.

We do not accept checks/credit/debit cards--cash only please.

Computers available for public use with library card or picture ID. YOU MUST pay your library fines before using the computers. We check the shared system and if you have fines AT OTHER LIBRARIES you must still pay before using the computers.

We have Wi-Fi available. Choose "Melvindale" and you'll be asked for your bardcode number (leave out the spaces) and your PIN, which is usually the last four digits of your library card number (or 1234 if you're from another library). If you do not have a library card you can ask for a Wi-Fi day pass--but you'll need to bring an ID such as a driver's license so we can check to see that you don't have an account with outstanding library fines.

Try our 24/7 Automated Phone Renewal Service!

Don't have time to make it to the library to renew your books? Call 1-888-672-8983 and renew your books over the phone! Many other services are also included. You must have your library card number and PIN in order to utilize this service. Visit your local library today if you are unsure of your PIN: at Melvindale Library we usually set your PIN to the last 4 digits of your library card barcode number. Many other libraries in the area set it to 1234.
