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.
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.
