Please come to the Library's main desk in the lobby or apply online here.

Library lobby hours:

Monday - Thursday: 9am - 7:30pm

Friday - Saturday: 10am - 5pm

Temporary Library card holders and individuals interested in a new Library card,
bring in photo identification and proof of residency.


           Acceptable proof of residency:

  • Drivers license or State ID with a local address

  • City or township tax bill

  • Lease agreement

  • Utility bill with a local address - power, water, cable

The cardholder is responsible for all library materials checked out. Cardholders must report lost or stolen library cards to the Checkout Desk, 989-837-3457. Change of name, address, phone number, or email address should be reported to the Checkout Desk. Minors (under 18 years old) must have a parent or legal guardian present and sign the application to obtain a card. Parents or legal guardians who sign for a minor are responsible for all items that minor checks out.

The "County subdivision" will show you the township.


If you do not live in an area that pays taxes to fund the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library:  


A one-year membership to all the materials, electronic resources and databases is available for $125 (per household). The cost of a library card increased in January 2020 to better match what legal service area residents pay in taxes.
