Marlette Library

There were 53 Carnegie Libraries built in Michigan and the Marlette Library, dating back to 1921, was the last one built in the Midwest. Marlette belongs to MelCat, the Michigan Electronic Library Catalog.  This entity contains the combined holdings of all participating Michigan libraries which will eventually include 48 million items.  That means that Michigan residents whose library belongs to MelCat get to take advantage of this entire collection. This also includes interlibrary loans. It's a beautiful thing. So many books--so little time! The playful dragon in the children's section is called Pageburner.
