Exhibits placed in the display
case reflect the varied interests and collections of our
Northern Door community. A new exhibit is on display every
month, year round. If you are interested in showing your
special collection, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at

informal "Collector Talk" about their display.
With our new, larger facility,
we depend heavily on volunteers from our community to carry out
both the day-to-day tasks and the special happenings at the
Library. Our dedicated volunteers shelve books, maintain the
gardens, conduct programs, and hold our annual book sale. Please
phone Nancy at 920-854-7392 if you are interested in joining us!

The construction of the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove library
building in 2002 was a cooperative venture of the Village of
Sister Bay and the Town of Liberty Grove along with private
donors to the project. Of the $1.5 million needed, a third was
provided by each of the above entities. On-going expenses for
the operation and upkeep of the facility are shared by the Town
and the Village. The Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Library Building
Commission is made up of three representatives from the Village
of Sister Bay and three from the Town of Liberty Grove, plus the
Librarian. Funding for staff and materials comes from Door
