Manistee County Library

The Manistee County Library on Maple Street offers patrons many services. Their knowledgeable and friendly staff can assist you with microfilm and in finding any type of research material or book. They can even get materials from other libraries. Now that so many people have tablets and e-readers, you can browse the selection of e-books at the Manistee County Library. They're downloadable and you can check them out for two weeks.

All the branches are equipped with computers for public access. They offer internet and Microsoft Office programs. You may print from the computers for a $0.25 charge per page. They also have a fax service, carry tax forms and have typewriters available for patron use.

Kids love the redecorated children's room at the Manistee County Library, and throughout the year they offer preschool story times and youth programs. The summer reading program is very popular, and there are non-internet computers installed with educational and fun children's games.

The Friends of the Manistee County Library Book Lover's Book Sale is held every February, and includes a Bag Sale. It is held in the Book House behind the Main Library. The Friends also sponsor several other book sales throughout the year.
