We are dedicated to serving the residents of Manhattan and Elwood by providing a wide variety of books, audio books, e-books, CD’s, DVDs, and video games.  In addition to providing virtually unlimited access to information, we also provide numerous FREE programs and activities that enlighten, entertain, and enrich the lives of those in our community.

If you haven’t visited us in a while, we invite you to stop by and see the many changes that have taken place over the last year!  Our Children and Teens now have their own space to spread out a little, and we have added much needed seating areas in the main library.


Our Library board meets on the 4th Monday of each month at 4:30pm.
