Building Fund: Building With Your Support!

In 2013, the Garden City Library Board approved the creation of a non-profit public charity called the GARDEN CITY LIBRARY BUILDING FUND, INC. The purpose of the Building Fund is to solicit donations for a future library building in Garden City.

The Building Fund is a separate and distinct body from the Library Board. Donations for a new Library are not used for any other purposes.  Property purchased with Building Fund money is under the exclusive control of the Garden City Library Board.

Give today!  No donation is too small or too large. Make your donation by cash or check (made payable to “Garden City Library Building Fund”) at the Library during normal business hours or by mail at:

Garden City Library Building Fund
31735 Maplewood St.
Garden City, MI 48135

The Need

Users of the Garden City Public Library know we need more space.

  • We have no study rooms.
  • We have no program rooms.  (Programs are held in the staff offices.)
  • We have only two study tables.
  • Our shelves are crowded.
  • There are not enough electric outlets.

That is why we are asking for donations. We need your support.  Every dime helps, but it will take a lot of dimes to build a new Library. So come back to this page to find out about our fund-raising events.
