Ontonagon has had public library services for over 100 years, beginning with the Ontonagon Woman’s Library organized on October 29, 1904.
Today, the Ontonagon Township Library provides library services to all residents of Ontonagon, Greenland, Bohemia, and Rockland townships. We also provide services to residents of Carp Lake township (White Pine) through a reciprocal service sharing agreement (Carp Lake library members can use the Ontonagon library, and vice-versa)!
OTL is a single-room library located in the Ontonagon Township Building at 311 North Steel Street in downtown Ontonagon. We are adjacent to the Township of Ontonagon offices, and directly beneath the historic Ontonagon Theater of Performing Arts.The Ontonagon Herald announces the organization of the Ontonagon Women’s Library, 1904.
