Stay safe, and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Dear friends and patrons,

 

In accordance with advice from Governor Gretchen Whitmer's office and the Michigan Library Association, we have made the very difficult decision to close our doors and suspend ALL library services and programs, effective Tuesday, 3/17/20.

 

All due dates will be automatically extended, and late fines will not accrue during the closure. You are under no obligation to return items until we have re-opened.

 

We will make an announcement as to continued closure or a re-open date prior to April 5th. This will also be in accordance with state advice.

 

We expect significant disruption to interlibrary loan services during this time, but we hope to have drive-up/walk-up service available for picking up holds 1 or 2 days a week, as staff will still be in the building working part-time on essential duties and special projects (including cleaning/sanitizing).

 

We are making this decision in the interest of community health, and regret any disruption or inconvenience to the lives of our patrons.

 

Thanks!

 

Leo Siren, Director

The library will be CLOSED on Tuesday, May 2nd due to elections being held in the Township Building.
 
LEGO Club is CANCELLED for Monday, May 1st due to voting machine setup in the meeting room. The final meeting of LEGO Club will be held on Monday, May 8th as scheduled. Parents, if you'd like to send along a treat to share for our last session, please do so!
 
The May 2017 Library Board meeting will be held on Monday, May 8th, but will be pushed back to 5:00 PM to accommodate LEGO Club.

Federal and State forms for paying your 2017 income taxes are now available at the library! 1040, 1040A, and 1040EZ, as well as Michigan state 1040s with or without home heating credit.

 

 

WE ARE PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE AN EXCITING NEW EXPANSION OF LIBRARY SERVICES...

 

Starting Monday, March 20th, 2017, Carp Lake Township Library patrons can use their memberships to check out items here at Ontonagon Township Library...

 

... and...

 

Ontonagon Township Library patrons can use their memberships to check out items at Carp Lake Township Library (located at the Mineral River Plaza in White Pine)!

This innovative collection sharing initiative facilitates the immediate, in-person use of interlibrary loan priveleges, adding value and convenience to memberships at both libraries. All told, the collection sharing program gives residents of Ontonagon, Carp Lake, Bohemia, Greenland, and Rockland townships direct access to over 40,000 print materials and nearly 2,000 video units.


A picture of you, literally buried in books because of your unprecedented access to library materials throughout northern Ontonagon County!

We are no longer distributing eclipse glasses as of 8/16. You people have ripped through 950 pairs of them already. Monsters. Here are your options:
 

1. Pay $100 for 10 pairs on Amazon and probably end up with the weird imports that are not ISO certified and made out of asbestos and BPA.

 

2. Share. Seriously, there are 950 pairs out there. You might check with the Carp Lake Township Library or the Rousseau Bar, where some pairs were sent to serve the far reaches of our patronage, but I imagine they're both running low by now too.

 

3. Maybe just don't worry about it because it's probably going to rain anyway?

 

or...

 

4. Come to the library the day of the eclipse, Monday, August 21st, where we will distribute our last 48 pairs of glasses on a first-come, first-served basis at precisely twelve o' clock noon, EST.

 

GOOD LUCK!!!
