Algoma Public Library: So Much More Than A Building Full of Books!
April 4 – 10, 2021 is National Library Week and we wish to salute our very own Algoma Public Library!
If it has been some time since you have visited the Algoma Public Library, plan a trip soon so you can experience so many wonderful services, activities, and events that happen there.
While the exact date that the library was established may be up for debate, the Algoma Public Library has been a staple of the community since it opened its doors.
Now housed at 406 Fremont Street in the building that was once the Door-Kewaunee County Teachers College, the library is home to 28,612 books, 158,512 E-books, 1,889 audio items (audio-books and music cds), 4,345 DVDs, 173 microfilm reels, and 1,086 pamphlets. This is a big increase from the original 323 books! (Source: https://www.algomapubliclibrary.org/about.html)
The library is also the source for events and activities for the entire community supported in part by the Algoma Library Friends! From pre-school story hour, teen groups, and books and brews for the adult crowd, there is always something going on. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the creative staff moved many events and activities online and offered curbside pickup of library materials and hands-on activities. They never missed a beat keeping the community engaged while we stayed safer at home over this past year.
Beginning April 5, 2021, the library has extended its open hours once again to make sure everyone can get what they need.
In addition, April 16, 2021, is National Librarian Day! The librarians are going to answer your questions on Facebook Live. Submit your questions here then tune in at 12:00 PM on April 16, 2021 for the answers!
