Library Celebrates 100 Years of Service

2023 marks 100 years of library service to the community. The Romulus Library Center opened on Wednesday, November 7, 1923. Initially, the library was housed inside O.H. Raether’s Confectionery store in downtown Romulus with a collection of only 204 books.


Today, the library offers thousands of books and media in all formats and serves over 40,000 residents. “Throughout the years, the library has remained a cornerstone in the community, providing educational and entertainment resources and a gathering place for Romulus and Huron Township residents of all ages”, says Library Director, Patty Braden.


Celebrations will include a community-wide scavenger hunt, special programs for all ages, and a Centennial Celebration in the fall. We can’t wait to see you all throughout the year to celebrate this amazing milestone! Happy 100 Years!
