Director's Message

We are pleased to provide this online presence for your convenience and enrichment.

Welcome to the Ironwood Carnegie Library!


Built in 1901 with the support of philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, we are proud to be the oldest continually operating Carnegie Library in the state of Michigan. A cornerstone of our downtown community, our rich history is complemented by our firm commitment to bringing 21st-century resources to those who live and work in our beautiful Northwoods community. Our board, staff, volunteers, and Friends group welcome you to the belongs to you!

The Ironwood Carnegie always has the latest best sellers in print, both fiction and non-fiction. We have large print, inspirational, audio, young adult, and children’s books, as well as our Local and Michigan History collection and our Early Childhood Resource Library. 

We have DVDs, including your favorite PBS series and more. You can stop by to read your favorite magazine, newspaper…or just to visit with the staff!

You can access eBooks, audiobooks, and digital magazines with your library card. You can stream movies through Kanopy and access the Michigan eLibrary databases 24/7.

We have resources for families caring for older adults, including books, memory kits, and videos.

You can take part in book clubs, programs, and presentations-in person and virtually.

Who knew a library card could offer so much?

Please feel free to call me at (906) 932-4789 or email me at anytime you have questions or suggestions… thank you for being a part of the Ironwood Carnegie Library!
