About the Library
We offer free wifi, public computers, popular fiction, current DVDs, and lots of other great stuff for kids, teens and adults. Library programs vary from story times year-round to special events.
Established in 2000.
The Manchester District Library was voted into existence in 2000 by the residents of Bridgewater, Freedom, and Manchester Townships, as well as the (formerly Village) City of Manchester.
The district library replaced Manchester Township Library, which was one of the oldest libraries in the state. One of the biggest changes when the district library was incorporated was the move from an historic home downtown to the old Ford factory building on City Rd. on the banks of the River Raisin. Since 2001 the library has leased its space from the City of Manchester, and shares use of the building with various city and county agencies.
A member of library cooperative The Library Network since 2004, the library's shared catalog and delivery service extend patrons' reach well beyond the borders of the District.
The Manchester District Library is the community’s connection to the world of ideas, imagination, and knowledge.
