Family Homework Center

Due to current circumstances, the Family Homework Center is not available at this time.  If you need a computer, we have 3 general-purpose terminals available in our lobby for 45 minutes at a time, with the same basic tools.

The computers in the Family Homework Center have tools intended to help students and adults with research, homework, and word processing. Call Children's Services at 248-618-7692 to reserve time on these computers, or stop by on a first come-first serve basis and sign up using the Reservation Kiosk. All computer users must have a library card in order to reserve and use our computers. Computer users are allowed up to 1 hour of time on the computers. Color and black and white printing is available. Users are allowed 5 pages free a day, then each additional page is $0.25. Computers are available when the library opens and automatically shut down 15 minutes before closing time.
