The Library is staffed by volunteers and will be closed if one
is not on duty. We make every effort to keep the library open. It is strongly suggested that anyone with travel
or time constraints please call before their intended visit to make sure that there is a librarian on duty.
Some of our holdings include:
A substantial holding of Bay City Polk Directories dating to 1866; insurance maps of
Bay City of various years from 1890s to 1960; birdseye maps of Bay City from 1879 and 1891;
major histories of Bay County dating back to 1875; Genealogical materials,
including over 100 local family genealogies; information on local businesses representing all
aspects of commerce and industry; materials on architecture, historic preservation and restoration
of historic structures.
Please note that due to many
factors, other primary resource items in our collection may not be available for research at the present time.
