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!

Silent Auction During the Holiday Trail Event on Saturday, November 17

Dear Friends and Patrons:

Recently, at our Friends of the Library meeting, we made the decision to try something new with the Silent Auction this year. 

We are once again a part of the Holiday Trail event on Saturday, November 17th, featuring many stops at local businesses around town.  Maps will be available and if you stop and get a stamp at the designated number of stops; you will be eligible for door prizes (one prize will be donated by each participating vendor). This year, the Silent Auction will be held for ONE FULL DAY!
