About the library

The Ellet Branch Library is a hub of education and entertainment for community members of all ages. Within the library, popular programs for adults include summer concerts, knitting and book discussion groups and a monthly Memory Café for people in the early stages of dementia and Alzheimer’s. For teens, weekly events include gaming, creative arts, and more. Finally, for younger children and their families, play, storytime, crafting, and parent/child early literacy programs are popular attractions. In the community, Ellet Branch Library staff can be found at area schools, at Safe Landing Teen Shelter, the Ellet Historical Society, and collaborating with community organizations to make Ellet the best it can be.


Computers and computer classes, WiFi, printing, copying, scanning, and faxing complement a rich collection of books (themed book bundles and accelerated reader titles are particularly popular), music (listen to the Ellet podcast that features the work of unique artists), and movies to make the Ellet Branch Library the one-stop spot for the community's educational and entertainment needs and interests.
