Library Information


Our library is located at 760 Newman Street, East Tawas, Michigan.
Please address any mail to: East Tawas Library, 760 Newman Street, East Tawas, MI 48730.

We are part of the East Tawas City Hall / Community Center complex adjacent to Robert C. Bolen Memorial Park.

After Hours Book Return

An outside book return is located under the covered walkway entrance to the City Hall / Community Center / Library complex.

If your books are overdue, it is OK to return them in the book return. Returning the books will stop the fine (usually 10¢/day) from accumulating further. You can then pay the fine by cash or check at any Iosco-Arenac District Library branch during library hours.

Library Cards

The East Tawas Library and the Iosco-Arenac District Library do NOT have a residency requirement. Proof of current address (driver's license, state ID, piece of recent mail, checkbook, utility bill, etc.) is required. The current address does not have to be in Michigan. Minors under 18 must have their cards signed (in person) by their parent or legal guardian.

Public Computers and Wi-Fi

The library has seven internet computers which are available on a first-come, first-served basis; however, they do shut down 15 minutes prior to the library’s closing. Local residency is not required for computer use, nor is a library card.

Minors under 18 must have a library computer permission form signed in person by their parent or legal guardian. Minors under 12 using the internet must be accompanied at all times by their parent, legal guardian, or an adult as indicated on the signed permission form.

The cost of printing from library computers is 10 cents/page for black and white, and 50 cents/page for color. Payment must be made by cash or check only.

The use of flash drives and other memory devices is allowed as long as they are compatible with the library computers.

Public Wi-Fi is available for patrons with their own devices.
