Enabling our member libraries to maximize the scope and quality of their services.

Established by PA 89 of 1977, Woodlands Library Cooperative was created to provide member libraries with access to resource sharing, training, communication, and library development.

Michigan’s library cooperatives are funded by a portion of state aid based on the population served by the cooperative and a portion of state aid paid to member libraries for the purchase of cooperative services. The cooperative approach preserves local control while taking full advantage of the wealth of resources that a larger service area makes possible.
