In accordance with Governor Whitmer's mandate

Hackley Public Library is temporarily closed.

While our hope was to reopen at the beginning of May, we are unable to open until after May 28th due to the Governor's current stay-at-home order.  We are waiting for official word from the Health Department on what the next step will be.  After that, we will need some time to prepare the library for visitors.  The health of our patrons is of utmost importance, and our goal is to reopen in stages, or 'waves,' as soon as it is legal and safe. More information will be available soon, please check back for updates, and always feel free to ask any questions!

We will update you all as soon as we know more, and we are truly appreciative of your patience during this changing situation.
