About the Library
The Pontiac Public Library was founded in 1856.  The library currently has over 40,000 items in its collection.  

Our mission is to provide educational, informational, cultural, and recreational resources and services to all ages of people in our community.  The library will provide access to the universe of information and especially that information which is of immediate relevance and interest to the community we serve.  The library seeks to accomplish its mission through prudent management and development of its resources, and by providing access to materials and services to meet the present and future needs of the community.  In this effort, the Pontiac Public Library cooperates with other libraries, and with other educational and governmental institutions.  The library serves as a learning and educational center for all residents of the community.
