building character

Investing in the future

Since 2000, the number of patron visits to the Hackley Public Library has increased nearly 300%. Additionally, circulation of items has nearly tripled. Unfortunately, as demand for our services has increased, our aging building is showing significant signs of wear and tear. Our 120 year old library—a 27,214 sq. ft. facility that has been declared a Michigan historical site—is in need of renovations and repairs.

A legacy of learning

Hackley Public Library has a long history and a rich legacy as a historic building in our community. More importantly, the programs and services offered in the library enhance learning, enrich lives and help build the character of our patrons—leading to a stronger, more vibrant community.

Please join us in supporting the Building of Character campaign.

Together, we can ensure that our community has a library that will meet the needs of our next generation.
