McKay Library



Free to the residents of the Village of Augusta, Ross Township or Gull Lake School District within Bedford Township. Driver's License and proof of residence are required.
Free to Senior Citizens age 55 and older, no matter where you live. ID and proof of address are required. Free to Michicard members. Our library is a member of the Michicard program. If you live elsewhere in Michigan and have a membership with another library that participates in the Michicard program and are in good standing with your home library, you are welcome to get a free membership at the McKay Library. A driver's license and library card (with Michicard status) are required.

**Note to our hometown patrons. If you are a member in good standing, ask for a Michicard sticker for your library card. This will open the doors to a long list of other Michigan libraries for you and your family.

Non-residents are required to pay a $15.00 annual membership fee. ID and proof of address are required.

Interlibrary Loans

The Augusta Library is now a participating member in MeLCat, a statewide library resource sharing system.  Patrons in good standing can now request to borrow materials from other libraries right from their home computers.  The system is simple to use!  Go to  to begin searching.  Of course, we are happy to do the searching for you if you'd like.  Just give us a call at the library and we can make the request from here.
