Midland Public Library Updates

Finally the public is filled in as to what is going on with the downtown library, which has been closed since mid-February. An article in the MRT today tells us that "Although renovations for the Midland County Library are on track, library officials said they could not provide an estimate for when the facility will re-open." Wait a minute. When did renovations come in the picture. Remember when the library CLOSED BECAUSE OF MOLD? I thought they were just removing mold, but apparently now: ""Mold hasn't been an issue," [County Facilities Manager Tim Harris] said. "Mold has never been what we were after." So no wonder it has been almost 4 months since they shut it down. I was figuring it would take about a week or 2 tops. WE DON'T NEED NO STINKEN LIBRARY ANYWAY.

HAHA we really do. Thank God for the branch. For those of you who have been utilizing the branch library, there may be a second branch soon for the your use. "Supporters of the Midland County library system would like to see a new branch library added to Midland's South Side. The land already has been purchased, but the Friends of the Midland County Library are still discussing the possibility with county officials." The article can be found here. A third library on the south would be a great asset for that side of the city. Does anyone know if there is a way to donate to the Friends of the Midland County Library? If you do please leave a reply. Otherwise I will call the library when I get a chance. But I definetly support a third library in Midland.

I too thought the library was being shut down due to mold. It made writing research papers with my students very difficult. Not all of my students have internet access at home and the time at school is limited, so the students have always depended on the library for a large amount of their information.

The Friends of the Library has a shop on Michigan Street on that short curved stretch between Garfield and Andrews Highway.

Someone there could probably provide instructions for making a donation.
