Library Closed on Sundays Memorial Day through Labor Day

Library summer hours are in effect. MPL will be closed every Sunday through Labor Day. All other hours remain the same.


Manitowoc Public Library is far more than just a building—it’s a source of knowledge and information that extends out into our community. From services that extend to our patrons that are physically unable to come to our brick-and-mortar location to the presentations that are better suited for a school’s classroom, MPL’s Outreach opportunities brings the Library to you.

Manitowoc Public Library provides materials for cardholders of any age that are unable to visit the Library due to an ongoing physical condition, illness, age or other qualifying condition that limits  mobility. We offer material selection, delivery, and pickup services.
