Howell Carnegie District Library

Howell Carnegie District Library

Howell Carnegie District Library is located in the heart of downtown Howell. The library unites the old and new in its structure, as well as its contents. The original Carnegie building was completed in 1906 with money from philanthropist Andrew Carnegie and some local funds. The renovation and addition project were completed in 1991 and made possible through a bond issue. The new facility quadrupled the space available to meet the needs of our growing community. Currently, Howell Carnegie District Library is one of the featured sites on the State Historic Preservation Office's "Michigan's Historic Sites Online". The building is also home to the Howell Area Archives. The Archives collects, organizes, and maintains printed items, articles, memorabilia, photographs, and written materials of historical significance to Livingston County, Michigan. The archives are located on the ground floor of the Library. Open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 1:00 pm. - 5:00 pm. The Howell Carnegie District Library is pleased to offer tours to classes, scouting groups, or other interested groups. Driving Directions: From I-96, exit at exit #137 (D-19), go north approximately 1 mile on D-19 to Grand River Ave. Turn left on Grand River. The library is the third block on your right.
