Stop in and check us out!


The Montello Public Library is the heart of the city of Montello.  We are a lifelong learning institute that empowers people with materials, services, and a welcoming staff.  We also add an economic boom to downtown Montello, as many of our partners (patrons and community players) frequent local businesses. It is our mission to assist all of our partners with their educational, recreational, and cultural needs.  Today we circulate more than 52,000 items annually.  Come visit us today!

The Library Will Be Closed Friday, April 18 & Saturday, April 19 - Good Friday and Easter Holiday weekend

Please note the library will closed on Friday, April 18 and Saturday, April 19 for Good Friday and the Easter holiday weekend.  We will reopen on Monday, April 21 at 10 AM.
