The Grace A. Dow Memorial Library  will be migrating to a new Library system. This system will be cloud based saving the Library money, simplifying Library processes, improving access to digital resources, and offering patrons better services through their new online account.

We appreciate your patience while we begin the transition.  If you wish to place a hold please make sure it is on a copy that Grace A. Dow Library owns or you can use MeLCat (www.mel.org) to place a hold on another library’s item. If you would like further assistance, please contact the library at 989-837-3430.
