The Melvindale Public Library is a part of The Library Network (TLN), which unites more than 60 libraries throughout Wayne and Oakland county. We share a catalog, with the ability to interloan items from these other libraries. You may also return our items at their libraries, or their items at our library and we will ship them back through our interloan delivery service FREE of charge.

Click on our "about" button at the top of the page for information on where we are located, driving directions and our hours of operation.

Getting a Library Card

Library cards are issued to all Melvindale residents with a current Michigan driver's license or state ID card.

Children under 18 years of age will need to bring their PARENT or LEGAL GUARDIAN. The PARENT OR GUARDIAN must bring their Michigan Driver's license or state ID showing they reside in Melvindale. We cannot accept parents of their friends, neighbors, other relatives, etc. Signing up for a library card is a LEGAL document which must be completed by the PARENT or LEGAL GUARDIAN ONLY in which the adult assumes liability for items lost or damaged by the minor.
