Mott is a branch on the move, literally! We moved into our new building in May 2019, and we are thrilled with the beautiful facility. It offers many opportunities for the neighborhood, local schools and community at large. The original building just celebrated its 100th anniversary and was a very popular place to use for meetings, tutoring, programs for children, teens and adults, with special emphasis on literacy, and of course, enriching programs. With the new building, our square footage has more than doubled in size, and has many new spaces that our customers will enjoy. The new studio lab has audio/video recording and editing capabilities and the latest in editing software, and a new computer training lab for all types of classroom applications. The large capacity auditorium has the flexibility to convert into many different configurations and will satisfy many group events. In addition, the children’s is beautifully designed to be reflective of this historic neighborhood. Our staff is well-versed in assisting our customers whether it’s learning computer basics to research topics or if you want the latest book or movie!

I came to the library system after years of experience in retail, fashion design and management, and teaching in the public school system and higher education. I have a BFA from Adrian College, attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and MOL from Lourdes University. I love working for the Library because I get to use all my experience, creativity and collaborative skills with colleagues, community partners and our wonderful customers.

My name is Kim L. Penn and I look forward to seeing you here at Mott Branch Library!

History

Mott Branch first opened in 1918 and was built with funds from famous library philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The branch is named after Anna C. Mott, an active Toledoan who left a portion of her estate to the Library. The branch has twice expanded, first in the mid-1970's and again in 1998.

To better serve the community, a new modern 21st century branch was built directly across the street at Smith Park, adjacent to the Martin Luther King Jr. elementary school. The new branch opened in June of 2019.
