Interlochen Public Library

Welcome to the  Library a Community Built

Focus on inclusion 

IPL reaches the community as a whole. Described by all who enter the library’s doors as “warm, helpful, and friendly,” the IPL staff strives to make each patron feel engaged and comfortable, like a welcomed friend. IPL’s diverse and creative programs cater to all ages and abilities. Our highly functioning and efficient building meets the needs of both our patrons and our growing community.

The new building would not be possible without the support from our community as it was built exclusively by private donations and grants. The generosity of our donors and sponsors  are showcased by our beautiful  donor wall and  the  engraved bricks leading to the building.

IPL is open to the public and for the public; visitors are welcome to enjoy our free Wi-Fi and comfortable accommodations. We have so much to offer so make sure to not miss out at what is happening here at the library.

It is the MISSION of IPL to provide a welcoming, accommodating and confidential environment with free and equal access for all people in our community. To build and maintain various collections of media and formats to meet the needs of our diverse population. To facilitate access to education and lifelong learning through dynamic resources and innovative services. To provide and create partnerships throughout the community.

IPL's CORE VALUES are to value and respect our employees, volunteers and patrons. Maintain the highest possible standards of professionalism by a highly trained and committed staff. Increase awareness of our services and programming to the public and to empower our community by maintaining an open and creative learning environment.
