The Ontonagon Township Library announces a partnership with Driving-Tests.org, a company dedicated to driver safety and education, to offer free Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) practice tests to library patrons. The new service includes free tests specifically based on the state’s DMV materials. It is the only site of its kind to include accessibility tools that let users hear selections read aloud, make them into MP3s, translate pages into other languages, magnify text, and mask portions of the screen for greater visibility on the practice tests.

 

This partnership allows the Ontonagon Township Library to harness the power of Driving-Tests.org’s specialized practice exams to turn new drivers into safer drivers. The new program will work as an outreach to several valued groups of patrons, including teens, those with disabilities, and seniors who need to take a renewal exam, as well as patrons at every other stage of life.

 

Driving-Tests.org is a part of Elegant E-Learning, Inc., an eight-year-old company with a proven track record of revolutionizing online resources for learner drivers. Driving-Tests.org is part of a plan to improve global driver safety by providing free practice tests written by experts to anyone who wants to study, along with online copies of official study guides. To help achieve this goal, the company has also created driving practice sites for the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and India.

The Ontonagon Township Library will hold a “Spring Splash” party on Wednesday, April 5th (the week of spring break for OAS students.) The party is free for all kids. Parents and family members are encouraged to attend.

 

Attendees will have a chance to win a prize in our “Titanic Engineering Challenge” by building a boat using a limited supply of household materials. After the craft has been designed and built, we’ll check if it can beat the waves in our cutting-edge Maritime Turbulence Simulation Rendering Unit, which may or may not be a plastic tub filled with tap water.

 

Other activities include a Wii Sports wakeboarding tournament. Do you have what it takes to shred the virtual waves and take home the title of “Sickest Moves on the Seven Seas”? There’s, like, only one way to find out, man.

 

There will also be food and drinks, including a chocolate fountain!

 

Spring Splash will take place Wednesday, April 5th from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M. We ask that attendees RSVP (in person, phone, Facebook, or e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) so that we can determine how much food we will need.

 

If you would like to donate food, prizes, or your time, please inquire with library staff (884-4411.)

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!

A modest but attentive crowd gathered at the Ontonagon Township Library on the first weekend of October for our third annual Rock and Mineral Event.

 

This year's event featured a talk by author-historian Daniel Fountain. His recent book, Michigan Gold and Silver, is a favorite among local geology and history enthusiasts.

 

After Fountain's presentation, which combined the author's own impressive research with period photographs and documents, local collecters were able to check out one another's collections.

 

Have suggestions for programs you'd like to see at the library? Want to lead a class or give a presentation? E-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or send a Facebook message with your idea!
