Hey there Toledo Library customer!

Thinking about visiting the Maumee Branch? If you’re not, you should be. We have it all. Books, movies and music are a given, but did you know we also have a wonderful green space where you can throw a frisbee or have a picnic? Come on in and enjoy our Metroparks-themed children’s area where play is as welcome as reading. Are you into history? Then you’re in luck. Maumee Branch is a Carnegie library and in 2018 we celebrated our 100th year. We’re also located on the site of a battleground from the War of 1812 and we have a small collection of Maumee history books (if you hunt hard enough you’ll even find some embarrassing yearbook photos of yours truly).

Here at Maumee we pride ourselves on offering a little something for everyone. There are Storytimes tailored to kids from birth to age five, a book club that’s been meeting for a quarter century and another that meets at a bar. We also have one of the largest selections of books in the system and a gallery that features eight different area artists each year. So, if you’re looking for a library to leisurely browse through, meet up with friends at, or kick back and read, we’ve got you covered. All that’s missing is a quiet garden with a beautiful fountain. Oh wait…we have that too.

See you soon!

History

The site of the Maumee Branch has seen a rich history. It's been a seminary, a courthouse, a glass factory, and was the site of Dudley's Massacre, an ambush set by the British and the Native Americans during the War of 1812 that saw 220 members of the U.S. Military lost and 350 captured. Maumee was founded in 1918 through a donation of the Maumee battle site and $10,000 from known philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie. The branch was renovated in 2001. Our support group, The Friends of the Library, was founded at this location in 1973, and is currently active at all branch locations.
