Message from the Director:
The Tecumseh District Library will be closed through April 13 due to recommendations by the Michigan Library Association that all public libraries in Michigan close until that time in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Due dates on materials currently checked out will be extended. MEL (inter-library loan) has suspended service until further notice. The book drop will be closed and library staff will not be working.

We have a wide variety of electronic resources that can be enjoyed from home.  You can find the links on our website: www.tecumsehlibrary.org

Thank you for your understanding during this challenging time.
