WB Township Public Library News and Programs

West Bloomfield Township Public Library News 
The Library’s Easy Reader collection for beginning readers can now be searched by reading level. The collection is organized into four reading levels: Pre-emergent, Emergent, Pre-fluent and Fluent. Ask our Youth Services staff for help determining your child's reading level, and search the catalog for books that correspond to that level.
The Library has subject-specific resources for all grade levels available online around the clock. Library eResources have been reviewed and selected because they are reliable, relevant and current. They include full-text articles from newspapers, magazines and reference sources; critical analysis of authors and works of literature; and information about U.S. and world history, cultures, social issues and current events. For a complete list of eResources, go to, click “eLibrary” and then “Learning Resource Center.”
