Flint Public Library will be moving to a temporary location during the renovation of the Main Library building on Kearsley Street. Our last day of service at Kearsley Street will be Saturday, February 29, 2020. We will then be packing up and moving operations to Courtland Center (4190 E Court St, Burton). The exact opening date at the temporary location has yet to be determined, but we anticipate it happening sometime in early May.
After more than two-thirds of Flint voters said yes to funding a Flint Public Library renovation, three local foundations announced more than $16 million in financial support for the upcoming project. The Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, which made an initial grant of $1.2 million in August, now will grant an additional $13.8 million. The Ruth Mott Foundation will grant $1 million, and the Community Foundation of Greater Flint will grant $50,000.
Thank you, Flint voters, for investing in your Library. The Library millage was renewed with a 74.71% YES vote, and the bond proposal passed with a 68.16% YES vote.
