The Calumet Library is a combined library that serves as both a school library and as a library for the public. The library has a long history in Calumet. The public library, like so many other community services, was first provided by the Calumet Hecla Mining Company. It was combined with the school library in the 1940’s when the mining company was leaving the area.

 

NEW LIBRARY - - October 1997

The new Calumet Public-School Library was designed by the firm of Thomblinson Harburn Associates. It reflects the historical look of many of the turn-of-the-century buildings in the area with the use of soft curves and large mullioned windows. The combination of new oak furniture and refinished antiques from the old library emphasize this traditional design.

 

MISSION
It is the mission of the Calumet Public-School Library to make educational, informational and recreational materials accessible to the citizens of the public library service area and the students of the Public Schools of Calumet, Laurium and Keweenaw. This service will be provided in a friendly and businesslike manner.
