A Century of Service: Manitowoc Public Library 1900-2000
The Carnegie Library on North Eighth Street opened on August 27, 1904 and served Manitowoc until after
(Continued from other side)
In 1964 the library received a federal building grant. In November 1965 ground was broken after the Common Council approved the remaining funds. The Hamilton Street library opened
For more than 30 years the Hamilton Street library served the needs of the community and the demands of changing technology. In the mid-1980s it became apparent the community was outgrowing the library. Following the completion of a successful capital campaign, the new Manitowoc Public Library opened its doors on September 2, 1998. The new library at 707 Quay Street, in historic downtown Manitowoc, is a beautiful addition to the legacy of library service in our community.
Erected 2000 by Manitowoc County Historical Society in cooperation with the Friends of the Manitowoc Public Library.
