Friends of the Library
Book Sale

The Friends of the Library are having a huge book sale at Caroline Kennedy Library from Thursday, October 13 through Saturday, October 15, and they'd love to sell you some books.  The money raised from the Friends Book Sale helps to make your library an even better place for the entire community! 

Amazing patrons, we’d like to thank you for donating new and gently used books for months for the Friends of the Library Book Sale.  Now, it's finally time to come see what you and your neighbors have donated and shared with us so that we can share it with you

Listen, you like books.  We like books.  The Friends of the Library like books.

Come to the Friends of the Library Book Sale to buy some books and support your library!

Candy, Mini Golf, and Your Local Library...Together At Last!

We're having a little Halloween get-together, and you're invited!
(No, really, all of you!)

We're hosting a Trunk or Treat and a Haunted Mini Golf event at Dearborn Heights City Libraries and we need your help to conquer the (mini) golf course, devour some spooky treats, and inspire us with your very excellent costumes.

To attend, just show up!  There's no registration or reservation required for this free event, but if you can spare a suggested donation of $3-$5 for the mini golf we'd really appreciate it.

Feel up to putting the "Trunk" in Trunk or Treat?

We'd love to have you!  Please talk to us today about doing a trunk, donating, or sponsoring a hole of mini golf to help us make this the best event it can possibly be.  Help us prove that we're the spookiest, friendliest, and most engaged community this side of the graveyard!

Dearborn Heights Libraries are hiring!

Are you a people person?  Do you love books?  We might be the right fit for you!  Both the Caroline Kennedy Library and the John F. Kennedy, Jr. Library are hiring paraprofessionals.  Previous library experience would be great, but isn't required.  Being bi-lingual is a plus.

This is a part time, 20-25 hour per week position. Starting pay is $14/hr with a $0.50/hr increase after 6 months.  To apply, complete an application and turn it in at either library or at the Human Resources Department located in the City Hall building at 6045 Fenton, D.H. 48127.

Be sure to specify on your application if you have a preference for which library you'd like to work at.

Applications are available for download from the Dearborn Heights Human Resources Department website or can be picked up in person at City Hall or at either library.

Applications are due by September 30, 2022.

Dearborn Heights is an equal opportunity employer.
