The Otsego District Public Library is a full-service public library offering book and audio-video collections, programs and services to the residents of Alamo Township, the City of Otsego, and Otsego Township. Founded in 1844, the library moved into a new 18,400 square foot building in 2009. It houses 60,000 items available for checkout, offers many programs for children and adults, and allows public use of its meeting and program spaces at no charge.
The library is recognized for its outstanding customer service, its responsiveness to patrons, and for providing quality service with a smile. The library is funded in large part by a district-wide millage voted in perpetuity by residents in 1996.
The Otsego District Public Library is recognized as a valuable resource for the community. Our mission is to enrich the community by connecting people with information, each other, and the world. We believe the Otsego District Library will provide a professional and welcoming atmosphere and enrich literacy, especially in children. We will adapt to the changing needs of our community. We will communicate the library's wide range of resources and express the value of our library.
