On November 19, 2016 the MADL will no longer staff the Fruitport Library. We will continue to see the inventory decrease at the Fruitport Library until that date.
Your MADL library card will expire December 31st. Until then your library card will be good to use at any MADL member libraries including the ability to place books on hold as is your current practice. All books on hold will go to the Norton Shores Branch Library from November 19th until December 31, 2016.
Fruitport is working to join the Lakeland Library Cooperative giving us the circulation of books our residents currently have. Once our library is an approved member of Lakeland Library our residents will be able to share services with any library that has a membership with Lakeland Library Cooperative.
The Fruitport Library will need to hire new staff and are in the process of interviewing for a Library Director at this time.
Fruitport Library will experience start up pains, but the plan is to continue all programs in the same manner our residents now experience.
We are working with Spring Lake District Library to ensure our residents have library service should the Fruitport Library be unable to open January 1, 2017. Once we have contracted with Spring Lake Library, temporary library cards will be issued at no cost to Fruitport residents. This will be temporary plan of service until we can open the Fruitport Library doors and issue Fruitport Library cards.
The Fruitport Library drop box will not be accepting return books as of November 19th. Books should be returned to other MADL member libraries.
