Welcome to the J.C. Wheeler Public Library

The J.C. Wheeler Library is located in the heart of Martin, MI across from the Elementary School and Fire Barn/Township Hall.

Construction Update

Library construction has begun!  WE don't know how long it will last but we do know it's going on! Follow along on facebook and the wordpress blog to get updates.

First update on construction


A huge round of applause and big congratulations go out to this library in this small town that has the huge heart!  You all donated food and you all donated a lot.  So much that this library came in FIRST PLACE of all the Allegan County libraries!


Book Club


Our last book club was held on Monday, September 28th at 1pm.  We discussed Middlemarch by George Elliot.
Kudos and rounds of applause to Julie Pallett, the only book clubber who finished Middlemarch.  Alicia made it half way and deserves and honorable (very much so!) mention.
Our next book is The Shape Of Mercy by Susan Meissner. This book tells a story about the
Salem Witch Trials.  Book clubbers seem to be looking forward to reading it judging by the amount of books that have been ordered thus far.
You can order this book to read with Book Club or on your own from MeL.  It seems it will be a great October read!  Book Club will meet again Monday, October 26th at 1pm. We will pass out bookmarks then with 2016's list of Book Club books to read.

The Teen Council met on Monday, September 28th to hang out and chat.  The teens ate a lot of food, played a lot of youtube videos and made plans for the upcoming Teen Council events.  You can pick up a calendar of events at the library!  Next meeting will be October 26th at 3pm where we will be putting together Operation Christmas Shoeboxes and making haunted gingerbread houses.  Come join the fun that is Teen Council!


Toddler Time is on break and will be getting back together on Tuesday, October 6th at 10:30am.  Cannot wait to see you all then!  We have a VERY special craft planned for the day.
