The Les Cheneaux Library was built in 2003 through the work of a committed group of volunteers and the generosity of many in our region. The beautiful new library is a true reflection of the unique character of the Les Cheneaux area.
The log cabin structure features a quiet reading room with a fireplace, computer lab, wireless internet, wrap-around porch, comfortable furnishings, murals and stained glass by local artisans, and a meeting room with large screen for media presentations.

LCCL is a branch of Bayliss Public Library of Sault Ste. Marie.
The Library has nearly 2500 members and houses a collection of over 12,000 titles. In 2007, patrons accessed our wireless network over 6000 times and nearly 11,000 items were checked out.

The Library has recently won grants from Michigan Council for Arts, Libri Foundation, and Noyes Foundation enabling the building of our reference and children’s sections and a summer film festival.
Donations comprise a large portion of our budget and significantly contribute to our ability to provide timely materials and quality programming. LCCL maintains a list of items that are needed to continue to meet the needs of our community. The generosity of our patrons is greatly appreciated.

Your Library staff welcomes you. We know you will enjoy the time you spend at the Les Cheneaux Community Library.


Cards are available free of charge to residents of Clark Township, Mackinac County and Chippewa County. Proof of a local address or local property ownership must be presented. Individuals who reside outside the Library’s service area may obtain a card for an annual fee of $15.00. You will be assigned a barcode number and a PIN. It is necessary to have your card to check out materials, to order books through interlibrary loan, and to log into library computers. For the comfort of our patrons, we ask that cell phones be used outside.
