A great place to have company meeting or just getting a book to check out to find out to do a project or learning how to get something done.

Attended the Hour of Code event with my 9 year old. The workers were friendly and it was a well ran/organized event. We're definitely excited to come back and do more!

This remodeled library is very nice. Last I knew it was still using the card system to look up books. Now it is all computerized. You can search for a book much easier now. They have neatly organized areas of book selections. The children's area is right in the front and has a computer area for kids that is monitored. There is also a different computer room upstairs.
With the large addition this is so very nice. Organized ..fiction down stairs non fiction upstairs ...super selections on everything...and for all the nay- saying about Flint. ....don't believe a word of it ..their cultural center needs to be visited. Trust me. You won't be disappointed
