Welcome to the Leelanau Township Library
Message from the Director


The construction on lower Nagonaba Street is nearing completion, so it will soon be much easier to access the library. Despite the detour, many folks stopped in on May 22 to celebrate the library's 50th anniversary in its current location. We celebrated Poetry Month in April with three poetry readings, an open mic night, and poetry storytime with the Northport School's kindergarten class. We also went beyond the library walls and held two children's events with the Northport Arts Association. 

Meanwhile, spring has turned to summer and we are ready to see you at the library! Our summer theme is Libraries Rock! and we're out to show it with a number of rockin' events and your summer must-reads.

For kids, we will hold Libraries Rock! Summer Stories & Events on Thursday mornings with activities tailored for kids ages pre-K through elementary school. We will also offer a Friday morning reading incentive program to encourage kids' summer reading. The Friends of the Library will again host their Strawberry Brunch/Annual Meeting, their annual Book Sale and their popular Summer Writers Series. We hope to see a big crowd sharing all-ages fun at Drummunity, a community drum circle on June 27 in Marina Park, and to wave to Clifford the Big Red Dog as he makes his way down the street at the Dog Parade on August 11.
