COVID-19 and the Library

​​Manhattan Community Library is closed to the open public. 


Holds for items in stock IN OUR LIBRARY may be placed online or by contacting the library at #284-3341 ext. 1.  You will be notified of when they can be picked up curbside.  All materials currently due before April 6th have been renewed until then.  We are only accepting returns of items owned by Manhattan or loans we arranged for you.  


This is a great time to utilize our MtLibrary2Go FREE download service!  Ebooks and audiobooks for all ages are available and only requires your library card #.  Browse the selections through the MtLibrary2Go link at the right. 

Montana Memory Project is a wonderful digital archive to research and browse through all kinds of Montana history! 

TumbleBooks is an online database for education and pleasure purposes.  They have graciously allowed our patrons to use the service for FREE right now during this time.

Thank you for your patience during these circumstances.  We'll get through this!
