Walker
Public
Library

The Walker Public Library was established in 1900 and a Carnegie Library was built at 207 4th Street in 1910 to house the collection. We joined the Kitchigami Regional Library System in 1969 to better serve our patrons. The Carnegie building was destroyed by fire in 1976 and a new building was erected on the same site in 1979. In 2020, the second building was torn down. In 2023-2024, the new Dale & Harriet Jones Walker Public Library will open on Tower Avenue.
