Flint Public Library
The current building (1026 E. Kearsley Street, Flint, MI) was dedicated in 1958. The building is being renovated. This will create an inviting, energized environment that welcomes individuals and groups. It will also support the Library’s role as a valued civic space. See YourNewFPL.org for more information on the renovation plans.
In May 2020 the Library will open up at its temporary location at Courtland Center, 4190 E. Court Street, Burton. It will be located right next door to the temporary for Sloan Museum. Our hours of service will remain the same; open Tuesday-Thursday 11am-8pm, Friday-Saturday, 9am-6pm, closed Sunday-Monday. The Library is projected to be at Courtland Center through June 2021.
At Courtland Center we will offer books and DVDs to check out, computer access and Wi-Fi, lots of children’s programming, and as much other programming as will fit into the space. Fortunately, this location has regular bus service, plenty of parking and hours that fit our library schedule.
The Flint Public Library was founded in 1851 by “The Ladies Library Association” a group of women who were active in the local community before Flint was incorporated as a city (1855). It became a Flint Board of Education department in 1885. It evolved into a district library in 2000 with a board comprised of appointees from the City of Flint and the Flint Board of Education. The Flint Public Library is supported by Flint citizens. The building was purchased in 2004 from the Flint Board of Education. The Flint Public Library serves Flint and the surrounding areas.
Our mission is to be Flint’s go-to place for learning across the lifespan “Learn for Life.” That means every person, at any age, for any reason, can come here and gain new knowledge:
