We're closed for Thanksgiving, but our website is open even on holidays!
Regular hours resume Friday at 9:00 a.m.

Remember you can renew your items online.

Need last minute turkey tips? We've got some on our website!

Need info to share with the kids on the history, traditions and some crafts?

Afer turkey, comes shopping! Trying to shop online? Have you tried the search engine Froogle? It's from Google, but it only searches web sites where you can buy things, great for comparison shopping!

If you're doing any shopping at Amazon, start at this search box and a percentage of the income goes to the Library budget to buy more materials for the collection. Indeed, any book, book on tape, book on CD, CD, DVD, or videotape bought from through this site will benefit the Library, so, if you are using, why not help the Lansing Public Library at the same time and at no extra cost?
-and-Giving at the same time!
