The Flint Public Library is the public library serving Flint, Michigan. It was founded in 1851, and its current building on the Flint Cultural Center campus was built in 1958. It has hosted the Michigan Storytellers Festival since 1981 and the Julia A. Moore Poetry Contest (to celebrate bad poetry) since 1994. During the Flint water crisis, the library played a key role supporting the community, and in the aftermath it partnered with StoryCorps to create oral history interviews of residents' experiences.

The Flint Public Library's collections document the City of Flint and Genesee County, local African-American history and literature, and genealogy. It also offers a Michigan Collection and an Automotive History Collection. The library has furthermore been designated a Federal Depository Library for government publications, maintains microfilm copies of The Flint Journal, and provides collections for both children and teenagers.

  • 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
