There are plenty of nice nooks to enjoy a good book with. The librarians are more aloof than the smaller libraries in the Bay County system.

It's new - kept up very well. The children's area is well kept and the librarian's are very helpful. The computer area is in a room of it's own with no one allowed to stay on the systems forever.

We enjoy visiting the library, searching for each boo. Staff is always helpful. They even play with the puppet theater and in the boat.

Wirt Library is spacious and beautiful. The librarians are helpful. The library offers a range of services - children's programming, computer seminars for seniors, research assistance and a great selection of books.

This library was built with everybody in mind. There are areas for children, videos, meetings, snacks, and lots of seating and the librarians are very polite and knowledgeable. Reference help, atmosphere is relaxing. Located on Center Avenue in Bay City, Michigan, very close to the downtown area.

This Bay City public library is one of the best I have visited. There are special themes set out with books, which change with the season or current events. Wifi, computer usage, online books & services make this library a stand out.

Alice & Jack Wirt Public Library is a beautiful, modern facility. If you're a visiting family, there's a huge children's area complete with a large boat to play in as well as toys, puzzles, and puppets. It has a beautiful reading garden just off the children's area for sharing books together. A separate teen area will interest older children. Fiction... More
